Everyone at Bering knows Mary Parker.  She greets us each Sunday when we enter the sanctuary. She has her own parking place.  She shepherd’s Second Blessings and she is constantly in need of volunteers! She attends Bering Support Network each week – hasn’t missed one yet!

If you think that Mary is proudest of her work at Second Blessings – you would be wrong.  Mary is proudest of her work with Bering Support Network.  BSN was a refuge for her and her son, Kelley, as they traveled the path of HIV/AIDS in a time when those acronyms caused anxiety and fear world-wide.

Listen as Mary recounts what no parent wants to endure and as she shares what Bering and BSN have given to her and her family.  Then you will know and understand why Mary Parker’s car is parked at Bering seven days a week.
