Bramble Parishioners Celebrate Together

Delores Padgett and Dorothy Williams join the celebration at St. Joseph Parish in Bramble on June 22.


Parishioners at St. Joseph Parish in Bramble celebrated their many years of being a parish family with a social gathering entitled “next to last” on June 22.

“Following the 8:30 a.m. Mass, celebrated by Father Ken Walker, everyone gathered under tents for fun and games,” said Betty Huelsman. “The activities began with a light brunch of muffins, doughnuts, fried pies and drinks.

“Then the games began. Inflatables were there for the youngsters, with bingo, corn hole, card games and visiting for the adults.

“Photos were taken throughout the day by Scott Titzer, and a group picture in front of the church was taken. Snow cones were supplied by Lee Henninger, and they hit the spot on such a sunny day!”

Father Walker gave the blessing and a delicious meal, catered by Judy Burch, “was enjoyed by all.”

On July 1, “St. Joseph Church moved forward, with the other three Martin County Catholic Churches, to become St. John the Evangelist parish in Loogootee.

“We pray that God continues to guide and direct us as we move forward in this new direction.”
