New Bells, Gingerbread Contest, & New Council Installation - 12/20/15

 

This past summer Fr. Timothy received a call from a dear family friend with an amazing offer: bells! These are the same bells that were brought to St. Michael's in Wilmington for his wedding and ordination. The owner was looking to downsize, and wanted to return them to a church. Knowing Fr. Tim's love of bells he offered them to the mission. After some work to find a place to hold them (as our current facility is not ideal) the bells were picked up the week before Christmas from Delaware. We used them (a lot) for the weekend and then put the bells in storage until the new building is built and they can be properly secured. The faithful in Mechanicsburg thank God for this amazing gift that will be heard throughout Mechanicsburg!

 

We also had our annual Gingerbread contest. This year's theme was "Christmas Songs." all the money raised ($360) went to charity.

 

Also, with the blessing of Bishop Mark, the 2015 Mission Council was installed.
