From Pastor Kristine’s sermon with reference to the actual dedication of St. Mary’s in 1887 to the sound of the choir and brass quartet, to the courtyard full of people, St. Mary’s was at her best on Sunday. We feasted on shared dishes and worked in harmony rejoicing in being together again. Kristine’s husband, Melvin, masterfully grilled whatever we brought to him. Nicholas prepared a fun and challenging scavenger hunt. Friends we don’t see in person much were there. John and Sandy shared a display of now and then photos of St. Mary’s Church. Penny, our new Parish Admin, was there with her husband, Roni. (Note: as of Tuesday, July 12th, Penny will be in the office on Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday from 9:00 am – 2:00 pm so stop by and welcome her to our community.) We have much to celebrate at St. Mary’s and being together is a big part of it.
