Mary Wilson, an Oral History - Sunday, April 28 at 12:30 PM

Born in Philadelphia, Mary Wilson, her husband James and their son Chip moved to the Olympia area in 1957. They were met with challenges and prejudices but became instrumental in the building of our community of Lacey.

Mary was a YWCA board member, served on The Lacey City Planning Commission, Thurston-Mason Health Planning Commission and helped form the Thurston County Chapter of the Black Woman’s Caucus. She was co-chair of the Martin Luther King Jr. Day celebration for the state of WA.

Come and celebrate Mary’s 94th birthday and hear her stories of the early history of Lacey.

Sunday School Volunteers

DSC_0136.jpeg

Our schedule for Sunday school is every-other week.  This is because we do not have enough adult leaders to have class every Sunday.  Classes are going well and the kids are have a great experience, as are the adult leaders.
YOU CAN HELP!  If we have enough leaders we can have Sunday school every week!  Talk to Caroline Madden or Johannah Renfroe to find out more and take this opportunity to spend some time with the greatest kids you'll ever meet.

Sunday school begins at 10:30 am - and the children go directly to the Sunday school room when they arrive.

The Windows Project

In 2009 St. Benedict member Shirley Ryder commissioned 7 stained glass and etched windows for our sanctuary.  Money for these gifts was generously donated by Shirley and several parishioners.  At the blessing of these windows I took a video of the presentation by Carter Macy from Reflections Glass Etching and the explanation of each window.  It is uploaded in our Sermon gallery on the sidebar.  Nancy Zabel
