A Bensalem parish scored smiles with an Aug. 26 family fun day that featured soccer tournaments, moon bounces, face painting and a picnic that capped a six-week soccer clinic for children.

St. Charles Borromeo Parish partnered with archdiocesan Catholic Social Services (CSS) and the Catholic Campaign for Human Development for the event, which took place at the Our Lady of Fatima worship site on Street Road in Bensalem. The location includes CSS’s Fatima Catholic Outreach Center, which¬†provides parenting classes, English as a second language (ESL) and finance classes, a food and clothes bank, free legal services and community outreach among others.

Children and adults competed in soccer tournaments throughout the day, which also featured a dunk tank, water balloons and sprinkler slides to keep attendees cool.

At the end of the gathering, secretary for archdiocesan Catholic Human Services James Amato, Auxiliary Bishop Edward Deliman and Father Philip Forlano awarded medals to participants. In addition, Bishop Deliman passed a ceremonial torch to Father Philip Forlano, his successor as pastor of St. Charles Borromeo Parish. (Photos by Sarah Webb)
