THANK YOU for PRIDE PARADE success

A HUGE thank you to EVERYONE who made the FM Pride Parade today (Aug. 14th) such a success. We had ten people from St. Stephen’s march in the parade.


AND…the best news of all: our float won as BEST FLOAT Judge’s Choice of the parade, thanks to William Weightman and Gin Templeton!!!!

In the hours since I have been amazed by the wonderful messages and feedback I have received from people who were at the parade and saw St. Stephen’s priest and parishioners marching.

It was a wonderful afternoon and I, for one, am VERY proud of St. Stephen’s and what we represented today.

Photos will be posted soon on our blog, www.ststepensfargo.blogspot.com

Thank you again for those who were there in body, and those who there in spirit.

- peace,
