West County woman has lived a century of parish history 

Lisa Johnston
Marie Schumacher was excited about turning 100 years old on April 24. But just as exciting for her is the fact that she has been a parishioner of St. Joseph in Manchester all those years. She was the 730th baptism at the parish when she was baptized May 7, 1911. St. Joseph was a small rural congregation at the time, evolving in the late 1950s into a booming suburban parish and becoming at one time the largest parish in the archdiocese. It remains a large, thriving parish.
