A Rose for Regina
|Saturday, May 30
Regina Dennie was a long time member of the parish who gave a great deal of pleasure to others by playing the organ at 7:30 Mass or acting as a docent at the Mission. Her community involvement included volunteering many hours at the Museum of Local History. On Saturday, May 30 at 11:00am the community honors Regina’s memory by planting a rose bush in the patio garden at the mission. Please plan on attending this ceremony and showing how much you appreciated all Regina did in our parish community. Please RSVP to Barbara Alyward at email@example.com
