Our annual Outdoor Concert will be held Saturday, August 17, after 5:00 PM Mass. The concert will be held on the “East Lawn” outside the entrance to the Parish Center.
For those who have not attended this before, it’s sort of like Ravinia, Woodstock, a Jimmy Buffett concert, and Ribfest all rolled into one — without an entry fee and without the crowd.
This is a free concert put on by the SMMP’s extremely talented choir members. Please bring your picnic baskets, lawn chairs, blankets, beach balls, bags games, Frisbees, and food and beverages. The use of a grill will be provided. Come and enjoy the music.
