The Parish Cat

Ted is a rescue from the Hayward Animal shelter and joined the staff in May of 2014. You can find him wandering the campus to greet visitors, chase rodents, and join us for worship. At night he lives in the conference room.

In Memoriam

The late Oreo, the parish cat

Stacks Image 352
Oreo arrived at the same time as the Spauldings, as if he was called too. In June 2013 our parish lost a faithful companion that has been fixture around and about our parish for a decade. Whether worshiping with us, especially at the 8:30 service, chasing the rats out of the bushes, or sitting on paper in the conference room; he was a faithful member of our community! We miss him…
