We are very grateful to all parties who helped beautify our church entrances and walkways through the painting of the railings.  A good crew spent their Labor Day morning scraping the rails.  They followed up later in the day with actual painting.  We thank all involved - - K of C and others who gave of their valuable time.  Job well done!
