We ended our year with an event to raise funds for a mission outreach. The fabulous night included the beautiful tones of the St. Vincent Bell Choir and a wonderful performance by the St. Stephen’s Children’s Choir, plus a delicious dinner, amazing raffle, fattening deserts (YEAAAA) and a silent auction.
The Order of the Daughters of the Holy Cross (DOHC) is composed of women who have committed our lives to the work and service of our Lord Jesus Christ.
We pray daily for our church, its clergy, the Order, and others in need. With the guidance of the Holy Spirit, we reach out to those who do not know Jesus and share His message of salvation through word and deed.
Our rector, Fr. Ron Drummond, celebrated 10 years of ordination and 5 years as our rector. We decided to throw him a party. Speeches, skits, stories and lies; we all had a fantastic time. None more so than the Drummond family and the Daughters of the Holy Cross!
