Meet Our Neighbors Open House, Aug 13, 2022

Neighborhood Night Out
Saturday, August 13, 2022

Saturday’s “Meet Your Neighbor” night out was a great success. Neighbors came and stayed to enjoy food and drink, face painting, church tours, lawn games and the live reggae sounds of Strictly Riddim. Members of our docent team enjoyed answering questions and sharing knowledge about our Landmark church with approximately 35 visitors, a number of whom admitted they had lived in the neighborhood for years but had never been in the church. Many thanks to the discipleship committee for planning and hosting this event.

 

Thank you, Father Bob

“Sent forth by God’s blessing” following Father Bob’s 35th Anniversary Mass.

Parishioners found plenty of reason to celebrate on Sunday, July 10, 2022, beginning with Father Gebhard’s 35th Anniversary of ordination. Following his Anniversary Mass, they had an opportunity to personally thank him for his dedication to the priesthood and contributions to our parish at a reception in St. Charles Hall.
