Blessing of the Animals - 2011 Print

On October 2, 2011 Grace Church went to the Dogs and we even had a rat in the crowd! We celebrated St. Francis Day with the Annual Blessing of the Animals. It was a great day and all were invited downstairs after the service for treats and a very special collar for each pet compliments of the Sunday School kids!

On Sunday, November 7th Grace Church had their first Annual All Saints' High Tea.  All 80 tickets were sold out in advance.  Ten families agreed to sponsor a table of eight and they brought in their best china and silver, etc to make this a beautiful and exciting event.  Special thanks to Lyn Baker and Pam Pierson who put this all together, to David Crane who played beautiful piano music throughout the evening, to the ten families that made each table look special and beautiful and of course we can't forget the countless people that helped set up, tear down, cook and clean up afterwards.  Please enjoy the pictures below.  It was a night to remember.
