All Will Be Well

Several times this week I have found myself longing for comfort.

St. Dunstan’s new mini farmers market!

St. Dunstan’s, the church that feeds people has, for many years, provided our community a buffet style dinner, with emphasis on quality, presentation, and nutrition. It has not been uncommon for us to serve up to 200 people gathered in our parish hall, enjoying each other’s camaraderie. Additionally, we delivered meals to homeless encampments like United We…
