The new water tank has been delivered. Thanks to members of the Vestry for making this project a reality; especially Barbara Hagiwara, Jr. Warden and Memorial Gardens and Grounds Maintainer/Coordinator, Extraordinaire. Special thanks to Karen Pearson and Jeff Rodriguez for set up and initial filling of the tank.
If you can help with the grounds maintenance or would like to make arrangements to haul water to refill the tank as needed, please contact Barbara Hagiwara. She'd love to hear from you.
Fr Fred busy at home designing a new workspace. We think it's a nice calming green, and will bring him many peaceful days in his new endeavors. The photo shown below is of Fred applying a wall treatment to his den, a place which promises to be a nice spot where he can spend lots of time writing. Enjoy the photo, and enjoy your weekend!
Our Meditation Garden has been evolving over time with many new additions. Benches, Stations of the Cross, and recently a portion of the garden has been repurposed and turned into a Memorial Garden where parish members ashes may be interred. Fr. Fred has been passionate about this project, and it is becoming a reality.
Frank Schutz, and Jr. Warden Barbara Hagiwara, along with many other members of St Paul's have been volunteering their talents and their time to make this a reality. (See Michelle's Short and Sweet Updates to see the progress and many items posted in the Parish Scrapbook Slideshow).
On Sunday, August 3, 2014 Bishop Mary Gray-Reeves will be blessing the Memorial Garden to receive the ashes of individuals who have chosen this beautiful for their ashes final resting place.
A recently baptized member of our church, and long time friend of St Paul's, Bruce Wong built a church plot cover for the Memorial Garden.
The church plot cover is hinged and opens up on the top for the cremated remains to be placed gently through the plot cover's roof.
