2nd Anniversary - October, 2010
Our Tribute to Fr. Cass and Audrey Daly after 2 years of faithful service to ACOW.
Father Cass, you have been our
shepherd for two years; and in a lot of ways it seems forever. because you have
shown us all your undying love and service. You have, like the Good Shepherd,
led us your flock through some difficult times - economically, yes; but, more
importantly, through some difficult personal times - and we know you will
continue to do so. You have led us through God's Word and what it means to us
and for us. You have helped us know our Lord is always here beside us. Much of
what you tell us is very serious - but you always couch His message through you
- with your Irish humor. We, your flock, want you to know how much you are
appreciated and how much we look forward to the years to come -- of your loving,
but firmly Christian, leadership. We love you - and in appreciation, we have a
token of our appreciation for you and Audrey - for all you both do. You
are both dear to us. Thank you."
"Holy Father, we pray for Cass
and Audrey. We ask your blessings upon them. We pray for your guidance in
their lives always. And, we pray, Lord, that you will remain with them and will
be with your flock in the years to come -- guiding us all to do your will, to go
where you lead us, to fill us with your Holy Spirit, and help us to be the
church that follows your precepts, that carries out the small part of Your plan
that you have set forth for us to do. We pledge ourselves to your service and
pray that you guide Cass and Audrey as they lead us forward in your Holy Name.

Evangelist and Christian Vocalist Sue Sommer
Sue Sommer is a gifted Christian vocalist and evangelist, and she led us in song and Word and joy.

to everybody's delight. He did a great job!)
Women's Retreat - July 24, 2010
Theme: Windows to the Heart; ...a journey of inner
It was a wonderful
time of teaching, fun and fellowship. Fr. Cass encouraged us to
"stretch" ourselves; and how our daily lives and actions should be a
"window" of witness to others of our Christian faith. Fr. Cass also
livened things up a bit with his colorful clergy shirt.

children (including water balloons), limbo dancing for the young and
not-so-young, card games and lots of fun for all. Click

Pennies from Heaven and Penny Auction - Saturday March 20th, 2010
The Irish Pot Luck
Dinner started with amazingly delicious Potato Leek Soup and Pea Soup.
There was also a variety of Corn Beef and Cabbage Dishes. There was an
array of yummy dessert but the all time favorite was the rum bread pudding.
We were all warned to
wear green but Fr. Cass outdid us all and came dressed in his Irish kilt.
He had us all singing some good ol' Irish songs. We ended with the
Penny Auction which started slow, but with Carol's encouragement we all
joining in and it ended with lots of laughter.
Ordination of Deacon, February 21,
Our very own Dr. Flo Taber-Brown was Ordained to the Sacred Order of Deacons on
Sunday, Feb 21, 2010 at our 10:00 a.m. service. We were thrilled
to host the congregation of Faith Christian Church and to welcome a number
of visitors, some of whom traveled a considerable distance for the event. Bishop John Miller performed the Ordination and, at Flo's request, Fr. Bill Eaton preached the sermon.
There are two groups of
pictures for you to enjoy; a "Smilebox" created by Carol Broihahn, and a
photo album containing additional photos of this happy event. Please
