One Sunday afternoon after worship at Father Mac's previous parish,
The Plains, VA, he noticed lipstick stain on his white stole.
He asked Marci Markey, the head of the Altar Guild, if she knew of a way
to remove the stain. This led to the disclosure that Father Mac had only
one white stole, and that led to a discussion of what the theme of a new
stole might be. Since Father Mac had been spending considerable time exploring
his Celtic roots, including sojurns in Scotland and England, the possibility
of a stole with the Celtic and Cuthbert crosses as its theme emerged.
In addition to her other talents, Marci is renowned as an Historian
and a Couturiere, and she designed and made the stole.
She visited us in Milford to present the stole to Father
