I am so proud to be a part of Resurrection Parish. Our church is simply breathtaking. I consider the parishioners my family and father Jim is a really nice Pastor. Thank you for the beautiful pictures, I’ve enjoyed looking at them.
Thank you for coming out and spotlighting our parish. Sarah was so nice and friendly. She also managed to get all those great pictures without being noticed. I was sitting near the front of the church and didn’t even see her until communion time! Way to be unobtrusive Sarah!
