As part of our celebration of our parish feast, the Assumption of the Blessed Virgin Mary on August 15th, the parish will hold a chalk art contest for children on its sidewalks.
Children will be welcome to begin their project on Friday, August 12th and must complete the work by 6:00 PM on Saturday August 13th.
There will be age categories for the art theme and for the prizes as follows:
7-8 year old children will have the theme GOD BLESS AMERICA
9-10 year olds will have the theme THE BEAUTY OF GOD'S CREATION
11-12 year olds will have the them HAIL MARY FULL OF GRACE
Each registrant will be assigned a portion of the walks that run up to the church entrances and between the rectory and church. They will create a chalk image based on some aspect of the assigned theme.
A committee of three parishioners will judge the work and award prizes for each age group. The winners will be announced and prizes awarded after the 10:oo AM Mass on Sunday August 14th.
Registration for the contest may be made by telephone at 631-583-5392 OR by email at oceanbeachmagnificat@yahoo OR in person after Mass.
GOD BLESS YOU! We Would Love to Have You Visit Soon!
