Our Lady of Seven Dolors Catholic Church in Millerville MN Celebrates Their 150 Anniversary

 It was a beautiful day for the celebration.

 Banners and most of the vestments were red for Pentecost Sunday.

 White cemetery banners lined  both sides of the church.

 The banners listed the names, age and year of death for each of the souls buried in the Seven Dolors Cemetery.

 Dad's Belgium Waffles were served.  They used 18 grills to serve guests quickly. 

 Dad's Belgium Waffles with 10 flavors of syrup, sausages and fruit were served.  It was all very delicious.

 It was a full house and everyone enjoyed the food and the reminiscing.

 Framed pictures of all the 31 priests who have served the parish are now hanging in the  southwest entrance of the church. 

This quilt will be raffled off at the Seven Dolors Church Bazaar on July 23, 2017.
