July Events

Hocking Hills Hike
7am Saturday, July 6th
Carpool from St. Patrick Church (280 N. Grant Ave., Columbus, OH 43215)

Whether you’ve been there many times before or whether this would be your first time, our hiking trip to Hocking Hills State Park is one that you won’t want to miss. At this park, God’s lovely creation takes on many forms: rock formations, waterfalls, recess caves, and more!
Join us for the 7am first Saturday Mass at St. Patrick’s on July 6th, or meet us in the St. Patrick’s parking lot at 7:45 for the carpool–and an early start to what is sure to be a grand day of adventure. Pack your own lunch and snacks and we can go out for dinner. The amount of time we spend at the park will be based on popular demand of the attendees, but I wouldn’t plan on getting back before evening! We hope you can join us as we explore and delight in the beautiful outdoors at Hocking Hills!
