Over thirty years ago,
Halaki had received a
handmade copper plaque
as a gift from inmates
from Hawaii, who were
residents of a mainland
correctional facility in the Washington Federal Penitentiary
system close to Seattle. During visit to the correctional facility she danced the Hula and fellowshipped with the inmates
from 1977-1979. Because they truly appreciated Halaki’s
dancing and talk story sessions, she was presented with a
handmade gift of love which now hangs prominently within
our St. Mary’s sanctuary.
Thought this wonderful piece of art had been in Halaki’s
home since she first graciously received it, the family made a
decision to bless the church with its presence. They wanted
a “more fitting venue to be displayed”...“so more people
could enjoy it.”

“Do you here, in the presence of God and the community of St. Mary, renew
the promises you made to love and cherish your partner above all others?”
Class lead by Michael Kim in Gathering Room
We thank you, heavenly Father, for consecrating our relationships with your
loving presence. Lead us now into ever deeper bonds of companionship; that
we may enjoy the fruits of your kingdom with those we love; through Christ
our Lord. Amen!
