Congratulations Rich & Terry Lambert

Congratulations to Rich & Terry Lambert!

50 years of Marriage – that’s something to celebrate!  Present at the 4 PM Vigil Mass on August 31st with members of their family, Rich & Terry renew their commitment to each other through the renewal of their vows after Mass.  We congratulate the Lamberts and thank them for their fidelity to each other.  Faithful married love is a sign of the never failing love of Jesus; Rich and Terry, thank you for being that sign of Christ’s love for us.  Congratulations!  May you have many, many more years of life together. 

 Thank you to your daughter, Kathleen for alerting us to your special anniversary and for donating the altar flowers for the occasion.  As always, Mr. Angelo DiGiovanni, our parishioner, of Something Different in Flowers supplied beautiful arrangements.

RECENT EVENTS

All the children enjoyed themselves, and their families now have some memorable art work to display. Please take a look at our facebook album of this event:
