For Evansville Catholics, no summer would be complete without church socials. This year, a few church communities hosted their last socials before they merge to form new parishes.
Eight of the ten mergers planned for this year took effect July 1, the Diocese of Evansville’s Director of Communications Tim Lilley said.
At Sacred Heart's social Sunday, parishioner Randy Weber was working the "big wheel" booth, akin to a Wheel of Fortune chance game. Weber said he was "born and raised" at this church.
