It is very fitting and nice that the Joint Service Committee and the sponsoring congregations of Christ Episcopal Church, Episcopal Church of the Holy Family, The Church of the Ascension, Episcopal Church of the Incarnation, Trinity Episcopal Cathedral, The Historic Saint Agnes Episcopal and Episcopal Church of the Transfiguration saw fit to honor the The Rev. Father Bernardo Diomedes Tomas and the Reverend Shedrick Edward Gilbert. Both men served their church and community well and with distinction. Congrats to their families also. Will see you at the fourth Lenten service in Coconut Grove where my cousin in Nassau, The Reverend Father James B. Moultrie, will be over to preach. See you there everyone.

Well wishes to all of the sick and shut-ins: Leomie S. Culmer, Phillip Wallace, Wilhelmina Welch, Marjorie Sharpe, Willie Reed Williams, Melford Pinder, Cecil Newbold, III, Thomas Nottage, Hugie Nairn, Sr., Barbara Kee, Pauline McKinney, Gladys Moss, Freddie “Jabbo” Johnson, Leonora Bryant, Wallis Gordon, Rosemary Braynon, Earl Carroll, Thomas Fisher, Vernell Evans, Adriana Cruz, Ivadel Bodie, Eddie Denson, Sr., Barbara Harris, Arcie Ewell, Delone Mathis, Roslyn H Paschal and Peggy Green.

Join the gang as they travel to Wauchula, Florida April 10. Sponsored by St. Veronica/St. Hilda’s Chapter. If interested contact Sylvia Rolle, Elestine Allen or Fredrika Fisher.

Last Thursday some of our Miami’s Delta Sigma Theta Sorority Sorors took a bus tour to Bethune-Cookman (B-CU) to sight see and visit the home of our Founder Dr. Mary McLeod Bethune, which is quite different from our days at B-CU. B-CU is doing great and we who are alumni are very proud of our Alma Mater.
