Along with our exhibition, to mark this special occasion, we are planning a 20th Year Anniversary Evening of Celebration on Saturday, September 30, from 4–7:30 p.m. The celebration includes a 4 p.m. Mass. At 5 p.m., Steve Balkun, master woodcarver, will discuss the sculptures he created for the Church sanctuary. At 6 p.m., you can enjoy an appetizer, a glass of wine, and a musical concert by members of our parish music ministry led by Director of Music Ministries, Dr. Gabriel Löfvall. There will also be a raffle of small works curated from the many artists that have graced our walls.
