Our Annual Parish Appreciation Party was held, Saturday evening, February 3, 2018. Anyone active in a Church organization or serves in any ministry was invited to attend. The evening began with appetizers, followed by a delicious dinner catered by Smyrna Diner. We enjoyed the beautiful voice of Cindy Shields – also known as “Patsy Cline”. Of course, as always here at St. Polycarp, there were plenty of wonderful desserts! The hall looked beautiful! Thank you to the event planners and everyone who helped make this such a wonderful evening! And to all who serve here at St. Polycarp, you are wonderful examples of putting faith into action. We thank you and may God bless you for all you do. (Click on images to enlarge.) Make sure you check out the video at the bottom of the page!
