Partly Sunny and a high of 70
Potato Creek: As we depart Pretty Lake, now with our 3-day pilgrims in tow, we head north through Marshall County’s dairy farms and bountiful landscape. Watch for wildflowers and songbirds as we approach Potato Creek State Park on a special path created for our pilgrimage. We’ll enjoy lunch in the park with live music and festivities. Mass tonight is celebrated in the new St. Pius X church with an amazing dinner celebration honoring the Congregation of Holy Cross to follow at the historic St. Joe Farm.
