175th Anniversary Timeline

A committee of St. David's parishioners researched and compiled key events in our 175-year history. Sunday, Oct. 15, committee members unveiled five panels with events spanning from 1848 to the present. These curated events cover three categories: Campus Milestones, Parish Growth and Ministry, and Community Outreach.
