~ 90 Yrs of Thanks ~

This month, Our parish celebrated its 90th anniversary of its founding.  The first Mass was said in 1922...compared to most churches, she is just a *baby*.  But, nevertheless, as young as she is, we are thankful for the years of sacraments and beautiful liturgies. 

I planned a simple celebratory reception...since we just recently celebrated the occasion of the church's building, dedication of shrines and pastoral visitation.  Whew. 
“Simplicity is the ultimate sophistication.” 
~ Leonardo da Vinci
Simple details...
“Beauty of style and harmony and grace and good rhythm depend on simplicity.” ~ Plato

Many wonderful hands making simple delectables...

Where details and simplicity come together...

I used cream colors, with sheer gold runners and single red roses to give a tiny splash of color. 
The food was colorful enough.
 At our reception, we were graced with one brother, one deacon, seven priests and one bishop...
Simply one thing left to say...
 Giving thanks to God for graces received.
Deo Gratias!
