Welcome the Episcopal Church film crew

From Florida-

In December, the presiding bishop of the Episcopal Church, the Most Rev. Katharine Jefferts Schori, visited St. Columba Episcopal Church in Marathon to celebrate the 50th anniversary of the consecration of the little church on 52nd Street.

She was so impressed by the parishioners of St. Columba and the people and the beauty of Marathon (she is a marine biologist) that she has dispatched a film crew from the News Service of the national church to Marathon to make a documentary.

The film crew is expected to arrive on Sunday and will be in Marathon for about a week. It will focus on St. Columba -- its beautiful building, nature trail and butterfly garden, and the activities of its congregation, including worship, suppers, a celebration of the Eucharist at sunset on a boat named Spirit, dancing under the stars in the new pavilion, and the fantastic work this small church does for charities at home and overseas.

They also intend to show the beauty of the Keys and our spectacular ocean, and explore how the people who are lucky enough to live here -- boat people, fishermen, divers and just plain ordinary folk -- interact with this unique environment.
