Saturday's Prayer Breakfast

Parroquia San Cristóbal held a Prayer Breakfast at the Waikiki restaurant in Parque Lefevre Saturday. We hold a Prayer Breakfast every other year as one of the fund raisers for our parish budget. The theme for this year's breakfast was Sweet Hour of Prayer. We honored three members of the parish: Mrs. Milray Barrow, Mr. Vincent Smikle, and Mrs. Choroland McQueen. The Reverend Canon Glenda McQueen was our speaker, and we had prayers from Elder Marcelino Marshall of the Seventh Day Adventist Church, Major Proverbs of the Salvation Army, Mr. Gittens, and our own Mrs. Adica Moore. An acapella group, G Harmony sang several times, and, of course, El Gran Combo Trio de San Cristóbal wrapped things up. We had a full house and a wonderful time; we started at 8:00 am and didn't leave until after noon!

The Lovely Mona took some 120 photos, but I'll only post a few.

You all always seem to have a most wonderful time and what snazzy dressers!

Plus the Padre is one bad ass musician.

The whole thing just rocks.

Sometimes I think I want to move to Panama and do all the stuff that you about tradition and envolvement...everybody has such a good time too...I belonged to a Parish like that once...I was "social chair"'s fun, cranking things up.

This looks ever so much more fun than one of those White House Prayer Breakfasts....

Also, I covet the little pillbox hat. Just makin' my confession here.
