Then upload the video by clicking the button below. The video will be premiered at the farewell celebration on May 19.

All video messages will be edited together, and may be tightened for content.

Farewell Celebration for

Mary Werner

In the Back Yard

May 19, 6pm

Come join us for this joyous celebration to formally pay tribute to Mary Werner for her 32 years of service here at St. Thomas the Apostle.

There will be hors de’ oeuvres, along with beer, wine and soft drinks served in the backyard behind the Parish Center. You may park in the lower parking lot and walk through the gymnasium to the back yard.

In the event of inclement weather, we will move into the gym where tables and food will be set up.

If you would like to give a monetary gift to Mary, please make checks payable to Mary Werner herself. We will have a safe place to secure gifts for Mary that evening.

Please RSVP to [email protected] or call 612-922-0041 so we have a general idea of numbers.

If you have any other questions, feel free to contact Pat Adkins at [email protected].
