St Mary's is my home and comfortable for me. It is one of the few places other than the great outdoors that I can feel the presence of God. When I look up and see the 'angels wings' reflected on the wall above the cross in our sanctuary I know we are truly blessed. I know we are a spiritual congregation that always comes together to do the right thing. There is love, tolerance, compassion with no limits. I've never seen more loyalty to each other since I was a young marine overseas. We are a "Band of Christians" to paraphrase the famous WWII book and TV series, "Band of Brothers." We've withstood adversity. We've picked each other up with words of encouragement and shown sticktoittivenes through it all.
