MSPC 25th Anniversary

Some of the charter members

On Oct. 30 Mountain Shadows Presbyterian Church (MSPC) celebrated its 25th anniversary. What started with a small group of people trying to establish a Presbyterian Church in the Catalina area has resulted in a congregation “centered in Christ, caring for community.” This special service included a hymn composed by SaddleBrooke resident Steve Cupo, “The Faithful Church.”

Following the service was a chili/salad/cake luncheon organized by the Hospitality Committee. Next was the burning of the mortgage, attended by charter members and celebrating the end of mortgage payments. The day ended with the strong music of the Oro Valley Jazz Band.

MSPC welcomes everyone. They resist racism and other evils. Ongoing food and clothing collections help the needy. Visit to learn more. And join us Sundays at 10 a.m. at Mountainaire Road, south of the wildlife bridge, in Catalina.
