Our Christmas décor is neatly packed away! I truly hope you and your families enjoyed the blessings and the beauty of this Christmas Season.
Please join me in thanking so many of our wonderful, giving families in this parish that helped to adorn our sanctuary.
To Diane Hornbecker, for the generous gift of the 3 angels that ‘topped’ our trees this year.
To Jacob Graham, Lucas Stein, Jim Sheehan, Zach Smith and Chris Dimelow for their time and efforts on a weekday, to get our church wired up and set to go for decorating and returning after Christmas to take it all down!
To Jim and Paul Gobert of Bonnie Brae Flowers for getting our gorgeous trees, hauling them over and setting them up!
For the wonderful, talented families that spend a Friday evening actually ‘putting up’ all the garland, lights and décor; Lisa, Bob, Hattie, Camille, and Louis Orzolek; Lucas, Erin, Ava, and Lola Stein; Jeff and Rollin Poe; Mike and Meg Hall; Diane Hornbecker; Heidi Grandon; Greg and Brady Gerken; Linnane and Marisa Joseph; Grace Neirynck; Bob Blaich
For my decorating angels that beautifully display all the flowers, gossamer, glitter and gold; Bonnie Sutherland, Lisa and Hattie Orzolek, and Kathy Lemming
I thank the strong and loyal crew that return to take down, clean up, and pack it all away…till next year: Lucas Stein, Jacob Graham, Chris Dimlow, Zach Smith, Greg Gerken, Deacon George, Bob Blaich, Lisa, Hattie, Louis, Camille and Bob Orzolek.
I am forever grateful for all of these loving, caring families and their dedication to St. Vincent de Paul Parish.
