Saying goodbye to Betsy Dreier







On Wednesday, July 28, a few of our Wednesday Night Mass group said goodbye to Betsy Drier, an intern at Olivet Lutheran Church in Fargo, who has been attending Wednesdya night Mass since May. She has now moved back to St. Paul where she will finish her seminary studies at Luther Seminary. Here is Gin Templeton, Deacon Barb Olson (from St. John's Episcopal Church in moorhead, MN), Betsy and Fr. Jamie at supper after Mass at Silver Moon in Fargo. Betsy writes:
"My last evening with St. Stephens Episcopalian friends at the Silver moon! St. Stephens was one of the huge blessings I had received my last few months on internship!"
