This Sunday is our annual St. Mary’s Day Celebration! If we were so inclined, we could have a St. Mary’s celebration every month, because that is just how cool our patron saint is. We will restrain ourselves, however, and enjoy a fun coffee hour potluck with outdoor games following both services this Sunday. According to …

The Holy Spirit descends and enters each disciple, both a fulfillment of Jesus’ promise of a “comforter” and a future promise that all who are baptized will likewise have …

Our hunt for new cleaners began in February, and we have achieved success as of April 29. Next, Craig and John took everything out of the Supply Closet in the Parish Hall, added new shelves …

Last Saturday was the Dousman Chamber of Commerce Member Dinner. Jane, Kim, Craig, Dian, Carol, Lynn and I were there to represent St. Mary’s and meet with other community leaders. Our theme was a 1920’s murder mystery, and as it turns out, the murderer was our own Diane, playing the mother of the bride. However, …

April is coming to a close, and May is fast approaching. As the days grow brighter and the flowers pop out of the ground, I find myself reflecting on my ministry and gifts and call. Spring is often a time when I feel like taking on something new, and this year I am signed up …
