Parish Happenings
3rd Quarter of 2006

 

    September 29th was a glorious day for St. Paul's, with the arrival of our new altar. The altar was blessed and Father Stephen said Mass at the altar that same evening. The altar will be the focal point of the sanctuary for many many years to come.

 

    On Sunday September 17th, during the 10:00 AM Mass, Tony and Betty Argiros celebrated their 50th wedding anniversary by renewing their vows.

 

      September 8, 2006 was a special day at St. Paul's. Father Stephen was officially installed as our pastor, even though he has been our priest for the past eight years. Father McDivitt from Margaretville,  who is the Dean for Delaware County presided at the Mass, along with Father Flannery from Walton. A dinner at the LaSalette Restaurant followed the Mass with about 114 people in attendance. The special evening was a way to celebrate the occasion and as well as a way for everyone to bid Father Stephen farewell on his upcoming sabbatical. Sunday, September 10th a reception was held in the Father Rausch Hall after the 10 AM Mass.

 

 

      On September 2, 2006 Eli Christopher Weyer was Baptized at St. Paul's by Father Stephen. The parents are Christopher and Sarah Edwards Weyer.
