Many parishioners’ homes have been graced this Christmastide with a delicate anniversary angel made by Marlene Hickey for the 150th. Sold in a limited quantity, the crocheted angel ornaments were packaged with a small red prayer book, emblazoned with an anniversary logo and containing this simple prayer:
Thank you, Creator, for the loving parish with which we are blessed. Keep strong our trust in each other. Continue to walk with us as our story unfolds. In Christ’s name, we pray. Amen.
The 150th Steering Committee thanks Marlene for her lovely handiwork as well as everyone who purchased an angel. We continue to sell anniversary merchandise throughout the year. Watch for announcements in the church bulletin about anniversary mugs, T-shirts, and hoodies.
