It turns out they are the oldest church building on the island, dating back to the 1700s, although the church was originally Baptist, then Methodist. It's only been Catholic since the 1970s - before they got a building, they had Mass at the movie theater!
What impressed me the most was their loving care of the cemetery. There are graves from all three denominations, of course, and they've turned the small cemetery into a beautiful and prayerful garden for all God's children buried there.
I forgot to mention this from earlier in the week: I'm not sure why, but the first time we went to Assateague, I declared that the first person to see the ponies got to sing their My Little Pony song.

More stuff I forgot to mention:
Fun model kits!
My microscope bulb burned out! I was able to use my phone flashlight, but it was hard for the younger kids to use the microscope.
They continued to make slides of everything they could find anyway!
Would you believe we found out today that we also had a canoe?
Very fun and holds more people, a definite win!
