The get together was a success. We had a great time.
In attendance were: Richard- 15378 from Philadelphia PA, Helen- 881220 from Springfield PA, Annie-843042 from West Grove PA, Joanne-75060, and her lovely mother Caroline, from Harrisburg PA, Amy-893858 from White Lake Michigan (yes Michigan!!!), John from Astoria Queens, and myself. The church was beautiful and the food at O'Neil's was delish. I will post a group picture later on.
Thanks Richard for organizing.
I believe the parishioners of the church were very welcoming, especially upon extending their hand for peace to one another.
They (we) are a true example of good, Catholic folk.
After a nice but noisy dinner, we walked to Rita's Water Ice, and enjoyed a refreshment!
Also, a chance to stretch their legs before driving for the hour or more to get back home.
I believe it was a good time by all, and thank YOU Richard for suggesting this meet and greet!
I'm up for another road trip.
The conference I attended (National Catholic Bible Conference) was phenomenal and I highly recommend people to attend next years (although not sure the location it will be held).
Richard - a special thanks to you for suggesting the idea (and picking the date that I was in PA anyway!)
Blessings to all,
