Episcopal Night at The Ballpark
We are planning an Episcopal Night at the Ballpark for May 6 at the Springfield Cardinals. The cost is $13 per person. I will need a count of who is going by April 20. I'll get the tickets and people can get me the money either in advance or at the door. We can work that out later.
I know Fr. Stuckey and Paula are planning to be with us, among others.
Hopefully, we can get a good group from St. James to join us.
