Joined by the altar
I just received the altar stone a little more than an hour ago. Mary Ellen and I, with much-appreciated help from Heather, Paul, Cynthia, Geoffrey, Genevieve, Kathy and others, have been working tirelessly to have it all in place for Sunday morning's first Holy Eucharist at our parish church's new focal point, which served for at least the better part of a century at what was until last October the oldest Lithuanian parish church in North America. Though many who wanted to be here this Sunday will not be able to make it due to the late notice, I can tell you that the small but active Lithuanian-American community in the greater Seattle area is very excited about this, and talks are already underway re. different possibilities for strengthening the burgeoning new relationship with them.This is exciting news!
I've been told to not be surprised if one or two show up here on Sunday in traditional national attire!
(And I will have to bring the good camera tomorrow, just in case.)
