Response and Thank you from Kathy and Fran Giordan, Father Andrew’s friends who visited from New York for two weeks this past month.
Please find attached a note of appreciation and thanks received They have gifted St. Isidore parish with a new Ordinary Time (green colored) vestment (on order). So we decided to put together a “farewell” basket from St. Isidore’s as a way to thank them for their gift and our sign of our friendship. We had two bottles of wine from the Pederson-Meyer winery, multiple loaves of bread and jams from Elaine & Dave Shaw, a prayer cross made by John Roberts (included the note card for the prayer cross that you had made), a St. Isidore’s Cookbook, and a muslin fabric tea towel with an outline of the state of Iowa in black and a pin of a red heart that was positioned in the general area of Springville/Mt.Vernon inside the outline of Iowa (it was pretty cute)
The Thank you card is below:
This commission meets monthly to help plan, support, enhance, and evaluate the celebration of the weekly Eucharist, and other forms of prayer at St Isidore’s. The group studies relevant liturgical resources; provides training for liturgical ministries, and identifies and/or offers formation resources and opportunities for parishioners in conjunction with Faith Formation Commission.
