A good time was had by all, at our Annual Church Picnic!

A Good Time Was Had by All was the title of a book of poems by a Miss Stevie Smith in 1937.

According to A Dictionary of Catch Phrases  Miss Smith’s book popularized the phrase, but Smith herself admitted she had simply taken it from parish magazines, where reports of church picnics would inevitably generate the comment, “A good time was had by all”!

Well, I believe Miss Smith’s use of the phrase certainly applied to our Annual Church Picnic, held Sunday, July 12th at Holy Ghost Park in Shelton. Just view some of the photos of the day by our parishioner Chris Savisky, and you’ll agree!

Have a wonderful week!

Your Pastor, Father Steven
