Now as we look out our windows and see only the barrenness of winter, I would like to thank the St. Mary Garden Ministry for all their efforts this past year. The garden ministry has many members who toiled through Spring, Summer and Fall to truly make our parish grounds absolutely beautiful and many who gave financially to this ministry. Thank you to all of our 2017 Donors and Volunteers!

A very special thank you to Sallie Boge who coordinates all of the activities of the St. Mary Garden Ministry. Perhaps you would like to join them this coming year…we are always in need of an extra set of hands to help. You can leave your name at the Rectory office.
Some of our volunteers worked every Saturday morning and some occasionally and others even more frequently to keep our parish gardens watered, weeded, trimmed and looking their best. I know in January it’s hard to remember the heat of the summer. It was not an easy job!! I truly appreciate their dedication and hard work and am grateful that I can enjoy the beauty of their efforts every day. Enjoy the winter hiatus because it won’t be long and those crocuses will be bursting forth.
