In Feb. of 1972 we signed up for a house to be built on Elm Hill across from the church. Around April I drove around the block down to Farm and then up Janet. On Farm I spotted a house whose mailbox read, “Church of the Resurrection.” My first thought was, “What the heck kind of holy roller church is that?” We moved in on June 6 and we learned there was a Catholic church meeting at Dorothy Lewis School. We joined in July of ’72.

In the mid 70’s my two older sons and I went up regularly at 9 a.m. on Saturday mornings to help set up chairs for the weekend Masses. It took about an hour and a half. We worked with Ed Francis, Frank Zronek and others. Never had to take them down.

In the mid 70’s when ground was broken for the new church, we su7ered for several days from the odors drifting over the area. We assumed that the land the church was being built on had been a cow or sheep pasture in much earlier days.
