Thank you to Daniel J. Demers, writer and St. Elizabeth parishioner, for allowing us to reprint his stories. Dan specializes in obscure characters from the 18th and 19th centuries. None of us are quite that old, so we’re not skewered by his wry wit! Enjoy!
New: We are happy to present a reprint of Dan’s piece on a founding father in California of the Russian Orthodox faith who enjoyed friendship with the Roman Catholic priests he met. It’s an inspiring story of early ecumenism in the early days of California history. Click links to open PDF articles.
