Welcome to the Episcopal Church
Introduction to the
50th Anniversary Edition
The following is a compilation of memories,
recollections and a history of the past twenty-five
years at St. David’s. We have enjoyed
writing these recollections and hope that you
enjoy reading them, as much as we enjoyed writing
and planning this memory book.
This book is based upon a similar booklet
developed for the 25th anniversary.
For those of us who are relatively new to St.
David’s, the 25th Anniversary
Booklet was an intriguing look into our past,
filled with strange names and new stories.
like to share with you the opening sentence
of the Twenty-Fifth Anniversary Booklet:
"In 1954 Bishop McKinstry asked about
twelve families living in mid-Brandywine Hundred
to help with starting a mission church."
This was an amazing endeavor. What makes a
group of people commit to starting a brand-new
church? Where do they get the drive and energy,
while raising growing families and managing
the hustle and bustle of regular life? Why
not simply join an existing church? According
to the booklet, many of the new members were
unchurched or from another denomination.
why an Episcopal church?
It makes us think that
there is something special about St. David's
-- that the Holy Spirit worked through a unique
group of people, people united by fellowship
and a mission. Fun people -- the sort that
you want have dinner with, or share a bottle
of wine with. That original spirit and passion
still exists today -- in
different people and different ways. We see
it in our round-robin dinners, Pat Van Catledge's
dramatic services, the artwork, and the music.
There is so much talent at St. David's!
were all called here: to 2320 Grubb Road,

1954. This is our continuing story.
