  1. This was taken on May 10th & my friend recognized herself & Debbie M. She has additional pictures of both the old and new St. Joseph's. She also has film from a movie camera for the First Communion taken for her mother who was not present. She said she put a dark ruby red rosary on Mary's praying hands in the church before the children moved to the new St. Joseph's and wonder's if it's still there. The rosary she says was a gift to her from her grandmother mother in europe.
