A special missalette was created just for the occasion, featuring a stained glass window in the church itself.
OBERNBURG — Catholics in Sullivan County marked a milestone this weekend.
Parishioners at Obernburg's St. Mary's Church dedicated their renovated narthex and celebrated the parish's 165th anniversary at Saturday afternoon's 4 p.m. Mass.
Stewarded by Father George Baker, the parish is the oldest in Sullivan County and still going strong.

As Baker told his congregants on Saturday, "We have our good points, we have our bad points. We have our beauty, we have our flaws. But most importantly, we have our faith."
