Webber said that much of the old churches' beauty came from their quaint architecture and typical Western Washington set- ting. Progress staff artist since 1960, Webber is a member of Our Lady of Perpetual Help Parish. He lives with his wife, Joy, and their nine children at 4601 Vie.w Dr., Everett. Webber operates his own art agency in downtown Everett. Glossy reproductions of all watercolor photographs of mis- sions, appearing in this edition, are available from The Prog- ress. Suitable for framing, the glossies cost $1. About The Front Cover: Roche Harbor  he small pictur- esque building stands like an official greeter on the side of the hill, over- looking snug Roche Harbor. Its high white walls reach up to a high-tapering roof, crowned with the cross and steeple. This is the lovely Catholic Chapel of Our Lady of Good Voyage, which greets vacation- ing tourists as their pleasure boats moor in the harbor at San Juan Island. For vacationing Catholics it is more than just a picturesque wooden structure, gracing the hillside. It is the site where Mass is offered every Sunday during summer and twice a month during winter. Once a schoolhouse, the mission station is under the care of St. Mary's Parish in Anacortes where Rev. Paul Auer is pastor. The original schoolhouse was built in the settlement owned and controlled by the Roche Harbor Lime and Cement Co. The late John S. McMillan had opened the lime quarries at Roche Harbor in the 1880's and built the "company town," noted for its beautiful garden, neat cottages and balconied Hotel De Haro. Mr. and Mrs. Reuben Tarte of Seattle and their son and his wife, Mr. and Mrs. Neil Tarte, in 1956 bought the set- tlement from a son of its founder. The Tartes are form- er members of St. Teresa's Parish, Seattle. At the time of the purchase, the buildings were in disrepair and the settlement of some 100 persons had declined. The Tartes envisioned trans- forming the settlement into a year-around resort with the snug harbor the favorite boatel for yachts cruising among the San Juan Islands. As the result of lots of hard work and good planning, Roche Harbor Boatel and Resort is now a popular rec- reation center. BERNIE WEBBER Progress Staff Artist
