Pictures of November 21, 2014, music concert: A Salute to the Last 100 Years.
On Friday, November 21, at 7:30 PM, another celebration in honor of our 100 years was presented by the parish choir of St. Anastasia.
Through the medium of music we learned to appreciate the many events that marked the 100 year journey of St. Anastasia parish. For each decade of the 20th century, a musical presentation was offered. The Centennial concert program started with a salute to the Armed Forces of the United States of America. This brought to mind the fact that in 100 years the parish was faced with two World Wars and many other wars as well. We called to mind the many parishioners that gave their lives in service to their country.
The comfortably large audience in attendance was very diverse in age so that people could associate with different songs that were sung reflecting a particular time period.
We are grateful to St. Anastasia Choir and to the music director, Stephanie Larkin, for providing us with such a diverse and well sung concert. It was an evening that enabled all of us to enter into the celebration of our Centennial.

Three of our pastors from former years are buried in Holy Cross cemetery. Continue reading Pilgrimage to Holy Cross Cemetery
