Last Friday and Sunday were busy days for Saint Agnes. We had our final meeting of 2014 and our Christmas Party. A whole lot of fun and fellowship was going on. During the business part of the meeting we prepared Christmas cards for the military. We had time to write sentiments in the cards to let our service men and women know we love and support them. This year they were delivered to the aircraft carrier U.S.S. Nimitz. Ann Patrice has a connection with the Navy base in Everett: her grandson-in-law, who is a Navy Lieutenant-Commander, is based there.
Saint Agnes hosted the reception after Lessons and Carols. We had some mighty delicious food and drink for parishioners to enjoy following the lovely service. Thanks to all who delivered the goodies
Friday, December 19th, at 2:00PM at St. Mark’s Cathedral is the memorial for Canon Jim Long. Saint Agnes has been asked to host the reception following the service. This is an honor and privilege for us. Anyone who will stay after the reception to help break down will be more than appreciated. We are transporting necessary supplies/serving accessories to St. Mark’s and back to St. Dunstan’s.
Sunday afternoon, I attended a concert presented by the Sacred Music Chorale at Plymouth Congregational Church. Oh my goodness, the music was absolutely beautiful! Did you know Saint Dunstan’s has 3 members who belong to the Chorale? Karin and Terry Rogers and Jonathan Hanneman. Their next concert will be in the Spring.
