Climbing to new heights


Our new playground is a huge hit!  This fall, thanks to the generosity of the Amelia Peabody Charitable Fund, St. Paul's in Natick, and the Marion L. DeCrow Memorial Foundation, we installed an amazing new playground structure in our backyard and surrounded it with a beautiful new fence.  For me, this is the fulfillment of a dream: a safe, fun, challenging play space for the young people who spend time here every day of the week all year round.  If you haven't seen it, please stop by and check it out.  There's are elements of a climbing wall and a ropes course, along with a tall slide and peg ladders.  There's even a picnic table.  Young people of all ages are having a blast and getting some exercise in the process.  The playground is the final piece in a major capital renovation that included building an office addition and renovating the main floor of our parish house from front to back - new kitchen and bathroom, expanded parish hall, new entrance and windows.  Many thanks to the all those whose generosity made this importation work possible!
