Joined by the altar

On her trip back from the Kairos Prison Ministry follow-up (once a month her morning will be spent in the prison with the women who went through Kairos there), Kathy called and reported that the altar installation is being completed by a small work party today. This was confirmed by Fr. Davis' e-mail from yesterday:
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.

I've been told to not be surprised if one or two show up here on Sunday in traditional national attire!

This is exciting news!

(And I will have to bring the good camera tomorrow, just in case.)

    Oooh, I hope they make it- it's been Ash Wednesday since I last had the Blessed Sacrament, and had hoped to kick off Holy Week on the right foot, with a stop in to St. B's for Palm Sunday. That'd be a neat sight to see, although I have no clue what traditional Lithuanian attire looks like!

    As you know now, they did.

    Was great to see y'all!
