April 21, 2019 Easter in Rock Sound

Happy Easter!  He is Risen, Alleluia!
Dave took me to shore by dinghy for mass at 9:00am.  I had to walk a couple blocks, so I arrived early.  This church is St Ann’s, same as the parish where I grew up in Miller, SD.  So it always seems special to be here.  They had a priest here for Holy Week, otherwise they have a deacon say mass. 

During mass, there was a baptism of a young girl.  She looked like she was about 6 years old.  She was dressed in a pretty white dress, similar to what she would wear for her first communion.  Her younger brother had on a suit and tie.  So cute!

There was a special Polish tradition at the end of the mass for a couple from Poland.  They brought a basket that the priest blessed for them.  Then they had a blessing for someone celebrating their birthday.  And one more blessing for a couple celebrating their 13th wedding anniversary.   It is a nice small community which I enjoyed being a part of.

Dave picked me up after church.  We had a nice pork dinner for our special Easter meal.  We also had pumpkin pie.  I know this isn’t the traditional holiday, but that’s the ingredients we had for dessert.  You make do when you’re on a boat. 
there are 6 boats in this photo.  Our's is to the right of the center with another boat behind it
