Christ the King Parish picnic modified

By Herald Staff

FERDINAND — Due to the ongoing challenges and restrictions surrounding COVID-19, the Christ the King Parish picnic has been restructured to adhere to social-distancing policies.

A drive-thru meal consisting of a half barbecue chicken and the trimmings will be sold for $10 per meal on Sunday at St. Ferdinand Catholic Church, under the canopy in the back of the Spiritual Life Center.

The food will be available from 11 a.m. until it is sold out. The grand raffle has been modified to a cash-only drawing with a top prize of $2,000.

Tickets are also available for a quilt raffle. The quilt is a beautiful log cabin design in blue and cream colors. Tickets have been mailed to parishioners and can be returned by placing them in the Sunday collection basket in an envelope marked raffle tickets.

They can also be dropped off at the Spiritual Life Center, returned by mail or brought by on the day of the event. Tickets will also be available for purchase at the picnic until 1 p.m.

Christ the King Parish consists of St. Ferdinand and St. Henry.
