    Welcome to the Premier Issue of Bedford County Magazine!You may be asking yourself, What is this new magazine and why am

    I getting it? Allow me to answer that.I founded IN Community Magazines over a decade ago with the

    belief that people want to read news about their community and thepeople who live and work there. They want positive, uplifting news, andinformation about their municipalities and schools.

    We are supported entirely by advertising, not taxpayer dollars. Whilewe do offer school districts and municipalities the opportunity topurchase pages in our magazines, we give them rates that, in most cases,are less than what they are paying to put out their own newsletters toconstituents.

    We accept no advertising for alcohol, tobacco or firearms. We canguarantee that what you read in our pages will be family-oriented,upbeat and something that you can be proud of. In fact, we encourageyou to submit your ideas for stories to our managing editor, MarybethJeffries, at [email protected] Whats a goodstory? That depends on you! We routinely cover nonprofitorganizations and the good they do in the community. We coverfundraising events. We feature local houses of worship. We want toknow about the Boy or Girl Scout troop thats working on a communityproject. We want to feature the team that makes WPIALs. We want tofeature the team that is just starting out as a club sport. Weve donefeatures on centenarians, librarians and veterinarians. If you think hardenough, I bet that you can think of at least one person whos making adifference in your community. Thats what we want to know about.

    I look forward to a long and fruitful relationship with you,Bedford County!

    Wayne DollardPublisherAs we embark on a new year, I hope you take a few minutes

    to enjoy the information we have compiled for this edition of Bedford County Magazine.

    As always, our goal is to offer a bit of insight into the community.Some of our most interesting features focus on residents and theirpassion in all things "community." As you are going through yourbusy days , please don't forget to let us know about any person ororganization who you feel would be interesting for us to feature. Weget some of our best story ideas and are so inspired by our readers!The amount of good will and charitable activity that seems to flowfrom the Bedford County community is amazing and awesome.

    From all of us at IN Community Magazines, we hope your yearwill be filled with a good dose of peace and a little bit of joy, and thatyou're surrounded by the love and companionship of those who meanthe most to you.

    St. Thomas the Apostle Parish wasfounded in 1816. FatherDemetrius Gallitzin, thelegendary Prince Priest of theAlleghenies, was the first priest tominister to the Roman Catholicpopulation of the Bedford area asearly as 1795, celebrating Mass andstaying in various homes throughoutthe Diocese. Among these was theHeyden home. Following Father Gallitzins example and with his help,young Thomas Heyden was sent to Mt. St. Marys College inMaryland, ordained a priest on May 21, 1821 at the age of 23 andshortly afterwards became the pastor of St. Thomas, serving the parishfor nearly 50 years until his death on August 25, 1870.

    The original church was completed in 1817 and still stands onEast Street next to the original cemetery. A larger second church wasbuilt across the street to accommodate the growing population. Italso proved inadequate in size and so the present St. ThomasChurch was built in 1868. The original church, or little church, asparishioners lovingly refer to it, was restored and declared aCommunity Shrine in October of 1958.

    The present church located at the intersection of East Penn andSouth Richard Streets bears the inscription Built A.D. 1868 By VeryRev. Thos. Heyden, D.D.. Father Heydens remains repose in St.Thomas old cemetery very near to the original church.

    The carved wooden altars and figures were imported fromEurope, and along with the stained glass windows, have earned St.Thomas Church the reputation of being an artistic jewel.

    Our gratitude goes to all of the priests and parishioners who haveworked so hard to provide us with a beautiful church.*
