This is the church where my wife, Sarah grew up worshiping in. It’s where we had Carson baptized, and where his mother and grandfather, and I believe great grandparents were before him. Sarah’s folks, Frank & Stella Pella have joined a handful of other parishioners in spending countless hours helping renovate the church. I was asked to photograph Lincoln Bishop James Conley rededicate the church a couple weeks ago.
Enjoy this before & after photo. The before photo was from Sarah’s sister Laura’s wedding. The after was from the dedication. The altar area is still a work-in-progress, as are many parts here and there. But the improvement is beautiful! Proud of Sarah’s parents and their efforts!
For those of you coming to this page from the St. Mary community, here are more images from the dedication.
