Magically memories made in an intimate cathedral
The first time my husband (then boyfriend), stepped into PAUMC, he said "this is the church where I see us getting married". The wedding ceremony at PAUMC was everything we dreamed of – from the cathedral's architecture to the warm delivery of the Pastor Cathy. One guest expressed, "I've never listened to a pastor at a wedding ceremony before, but [Pastor Cathy] spoke as if she were storytelling. I held on to every word." The music, directed by Derrick Byars, will always be remembered as par excellence. We are overjoyed by the memories we have of our wedding day at PAUMC.Sent on 10/23/2019
