Bingo Ministry, Ladies Guild and Baking Ministry
It would be impossible to talk about the Bingo Ministry without recognizing Jean Beard. A long-time member of the old Activities Committee, Jean became involved in Bingo as soon as it began at St. Anthony’s in the early 1990’s. She soon became a fixture in the kitchen fixing up tasty treats for all the Bingo fans. For 30 years Jean had been there every Monday night until the pandemic became the only thing that could stop her.
Jean was born before there was a Church of St. Anthony in Prospect. When the first church building opened in 1945 Jean was one of the first children baptized in the parish. Jean has been a member of the parish ever since. She has also been active in the Baking Ministry and with the Ladies Guild along with volunteering at many other events.
Thank you, Jean, for your many years of service to our parish!
