The Writing of the History of Assumption Parish for the Centennial Celebration, 1989
Master of Arts in Pastoral Theology
The Parish History project is truly pastoral in nature for several reasons. First of all, the gathering of the materials - articles, pictures, newspaper clippings and verbal anecdotes - involved many people. Secondly, the project brought people together to tell their stories of the early parishioners and to hear the stories of others. Through this story telling the people were encouraged to give thanks to and for those who rooted the virtues of faith, love and service so deeply in our parish family. Thirdly, a bond of camaraderie and friendship has developed among the writers of the document. I consider this a very special outcome of. the project.
