Families, singles, kids — YOU! — are invited to join Catholics from around the Bay Area on Saturday, May 16 at San Francisco’s Sue Bierman Park at the intersection of Washington Street and Embarcadero in San Francisco as we celebrate family and show our support for our Archbishop Salvatore Cordileone at the Archbishop Family Support Picnic!
Our courageous Archbishop has made news nationwide for his effort to
keep San Francisco’s Catholic schools Catholic. For properly fulfilling his responsibilities he has come under targeted, coordinated attacks from activists, politicians and the media.
Here’s your chance to show His Excellency we stand with him and with our Church! Wear blue to show your support.
- Games for kids organized by Mother Teresa’s Missionaries of Charity
- A puppet show
- A ‘bouncy house’ for the little ones!
- Live entertainment will be provided by a Mariachi band
Weather and food:
Please bring your own picnic food. (The Marina Safeway is about a mile away, at 15 Marina Blvd.) Non-alcoholic drinks will be provided at no charge as long as supplies last. Because Little Marina Green is right on the water, the weather can be cool. We recommend dressing in warm layers and also bringing blankets and chairs to sit on.
Supporting Archbishop Cordileone:
There will be opportunities for you to send messages of support and appreciation to the Archbishop. Guest books will be provided for written messages, and videographers will be on hand so you can send His Excellency a live, personalized message of support. All attendees are encouraged to wear blue as a sign of solidarity.
