Pride, Inc. is an organization dedicated to the beautification of the Alton area. Each year they have a House Tour of special houses and a Garden Tour of special gardens in the area. This year St. Paul’s has the honor of being selected as one of nine local gardens open for the special Pride Garden Tour on Sunday, July 27th from noon to 5pm. Proceeds from the sale of tickets for the tour go toward continued activities to improve and beautify our area.
It’s been a year since the fire and we are still unable to use the church or almost all of the complex as the restoration work continues. The garden has been a wonderful place for our worship.
