IT WAS A GRAND FOURTH OF JULY!

Thank you  - all of you - our past & present parishioners, parish families and extended families and friends, and wonderful parish volunteers, who made a spectacular Fourth of July celebration in our 185th Jubilee Year.  It is with your support and dedication that our parade and picnic was a great success.  We look forward to seeing you all again next year, please feel free to download our church bulletin above and keep posted here and on Facebook for some memorable moments! 

Happy Anniversary!

Thank you all sincerely -- whether you prayed, volunteered, attended, or supported

As we continue each day moving forward, let us reflect on and live the words of our

rooted in the teachings of Jesus Christ.
