Longtime member of the council and former parishioner Joseph Anthony Barreca was laid to rest this afternoon, December 6, at Gethsemane in Federal Way. A noon memorial service followed at St. Francis of Assisi celebrated by Father Dick. He joined the Knights of Columbus in 1953.
Eternal rest grant unto him, O Lord; and let perpetual light shine upon him. May his soul, and the souls of all the faithful departed, through the mercy of God, rest in peace.
The annual Pennies for Heaven potluck was held on the evening of May 16 in Unity Place. We had dishes of lasagna and chicken fettuccine with salads. For dessert there was an assortment of sweets including brownies.
