Altar Flowers

    Flowers on the Altar are given to the Glory of God and in in memory of Kathrynís mother, Emma Harding Jackson and Paulís parents, Jens Knud Larsen and Leontine Capedepon DeRocha by Paul and Kathryn Larsen.

In Appreciation

    The month of August marks the 30th anniversary of Frank Acker becoming our parish sexton. For three decades Frank has provided loyal and dedicated service to help maintain our facilities and beautiful grounds. As much of his work for us is done in the late afternoons and on Saturday, itís possible that many of our parishioners see only the results of his hard work and not Frank himself Ė and thereby are deprived of the opportunity of thanking him for all that he does. All parishioners are encouraged, sometime during the month of August, to drop Frank a card or note expressing appreciation for his past and continuing service to our parish.

    Frankís address is:

    Frank Acker
    P.O. Box 907, Pearlington, MS 39572-0907.

    In recognition of Frankís service, the Vestry has authorized requesting that the Hancock County Historical Society designate one of the eligible unnamed trees on the grounds as ďFrank AckerĒ.

    In addition, during the month of August, there will be a bowl at the back of the church for those parishioners who would like to express their appreciation to Frank with a monetary gift.
