Last Sunday, St. Mark’s Episcopal Church held a groundbreaking ceremony to signify the commencement of new construction for a children’s building. In addition to dedicated parishioners, Mayor Vincent Morales of Rosenberg and Mayor Evalyn Moore of Richmond accompanied Reverend Bert Baetz as they shoveled the ceremonial dirt.
Also, part of the festivities was a shovel contest. Best Decorated Shovel was won by Jeri Culberson and Shovel Best Depicting Core Values was won by Lynnett Alderson. Awards were also given to smallest shovel (half inch) and biggest shovel (12 feet). Texas style BBQ was served to all attendees who enjoyed a nice spring day of fellowship in anticipation of their step forward benefitting the community.
Conveniently located at 7615 FM 762 in Richmond, St. Mark’s Children’s Preschool will be available for enrollment for the Fall 2014 school year. Reverend Baetz says, “The mission of St. Mark’s is to encourage spiritual, intellectual, social, emotional and physical development in young children through an enriched curriculum rooted in the Christian faith.”
