Description

Enjoy a lovely evening with dinner, drinks, raffle, music and dancing! It's the biggest St. Mary of the Angels Young Adults party of the year!

Formal attire strongly encouraged. (Black tie optional).

This year's theme, "In a dream...", it's taken from the Gospel reading for December 30th, the Feast of the Holy Family.

  • (Matthew 2:13-15)
    When the magi had departed, behold,
    the angel of the Lord appeared to Joseph in a dream and said,
    “Rise, take the child and his mother, flee to Egypt,
    and stay there until I tell you.
    Herod is going to search for the child to destroy him.”
    Joseph rose and took the child and his mother by night
    and departed for Egypt.

The north bell tower of St. Mary of the Angels Church exhibits distress conditions similar, if not worse than, south tower conditions that existed prior to the 2013 repairs. The engineer who inspected the conditions noted:

The parapet walls are severely deteriorated. Bulging and displacement of walls, as well as severe freeze/thaw damaged mortar, was noticeable around the perimeter of the parapet wall… the interior side of the wall are severely deteriorated throughout… At the northeast corner of the parapet level, the corner parapet cap unit and corner cornice unit were repaired using concrete in the past… Additionally, a steel plate was installed on the bottom side of the corner cornice unit and… the plate is surface corroded…

As part of the construction, it is the hope to install additional restrooms on the church level. This is a much-needed addition to the church building, and would also allow for access at the main church level.
