CAPE GAZETYE, Friday, August 27 - September 2, 1999 - 29 All S aints' parishioners pay tribute to outgoing rector James Manion Above, parishioner Peg Cathcart presents Manion with a replica of the church. It was only one of many gifts, including a portrait of wife Betty painted by Rehohoth artist Catherine Winslow Priest, and a scrapbook of photographs and memorabil- ia from his years in the parish. The Rev. John Dean, pas- tor at nearby Westminster Presbyterian Church and perhaps the minister with the most longevity in Re- hoboth Beach, razzed Man- ion good naturedly, ending by noting "it's been a pleas- ure to work with you - you've been an inspiration to me." Dean also praised his wife, Betty, who has been a re- spected educator at Lewes Middle School for many years, and prior to that in Laurel, where Manion had been the rector of St. Philip's Episcopal Church from 1970 to 1974. Before coming to All Saints' in 1981, Manion had then been rector at Trinity Episcopal Church in Upper Marlboro, Md. Trlsh Vernon photos "When Father Bailey left, we never thought he could be replaced, now we're saying the same thing about Father Manion," said one long-time parishioner of All Saints' Episcopal Parish, as the Rev. James E. Manion, accompanied by wife Betty and son Sean, were honored during a retirement dinner at the BayCenter in Dewey Beach on Monday, Aug. 23. After 19 years at the helm of All Saints' Church in Rehoboth Beach and St. George's Chapel in Angola, the Manions are leaving for Pinehurst, N.C., following the 10 a.m., Sunday, Aug. 29 service at All Saints'. Following dinner, a number of colleagues and parishioners "roasted" and praised Manion, sharing memories they've collected over the years. Above, left, Greg Mazzotta, senior warden at All Saints', addresses the crowd while Jack Hickey, right, church treasurer, and Henley Graves, warden at St. George's, await their turns. Graves noted that like Elway and Gretsky, Father Manion "knows when to retire - at the top of his game." He went on to note that it's been a "bittersweet week at St. George's. Jim Man- ion has been a friend to each of us and has the heart to listen to our problems. He's an amaz- ing communicator who always reminds us we can do better." Above right Martin Johnson, who has known the Manions since they served in Laurel, presents Jim Manion with a Delaware Police Chiefs Foundation plaque and hat emb;azoned with the word "Chief." Manion worked with the police foundation for many years. Manion was also presented with a Cleveland Browns and Pittsburgh Pirates hats, in recognition of his favorite professional sports teams.
