St. Augustine Catholic Church in Leopold's annual picnic Sunday meant fun for hundreds who enjoyed home-cooked dinners and tried their luck at bingo, a cake wheel, silent auction and quilt raffle. Summer brings several events at area churches and will be followed by autumn shooting matches and fall festivals. The events ensure busy days for congregation members, who keep alive a tradition of working side by side, just as they pray together each week. It's that same spirit of cooperation that founded local churches, oftentimes a century or longer ago and kept them thriving through generations.
