SHHS April 3rd Program—A Short History of the Churches of South Hero--April 4 7-8 The South Hero Historical Society presented “A short history of the Churches of South Hero.” Alice Toth and David Gardner took us through a quick history of the first Catholic mass celebrated on the islands in 1666, to the founding of St Rose [circa 1854], through today. The South Hero Congregational Church was founded in 1795. Guy Winch talked about how the fellowship hall was excavated and built by hand. A focus was placed on past joint projects between the churches, community outreach and support, as well as what is going on now. We must acknowledge Max Reader, Richard Crocker, and Father Branon, who because of their personal friendships, forged an ecumenical awareness between the churches that lives in the hearts of the parishioners to this day. Stories were also shared

of fish fries, community suppers, Sunday breakfasts, Christmas baskets, Food For Thought, and the donation of church space for CIDER functions.
