A Happy Anniversary



Fr. Larry Biller at the celebration of the first anniversary of his ministry at St. James.


Fr. Larry shows off the "church mouse" made for him by parishoner Victoria Waters.

Sunday December the 6th, 2009, was a special day at St. James.
It has been one year since Father Larry Biller became our Parish Priest-in Charge. Parishoners celebrated the occasion with a special brunch and "card shower" following the service. Father Larry's ministry has been such a blessing to the parish that this truly was a very happy anniversary, and we hope for many happy returns.
