A Message from the Vestry and
Stephanie's Farewell and End of year Celebration Fiesta!
The Vestry Invites you to a celebration of
Stephanie's Ministry and the ministries and events
of this past year on June 12th following a combined
service at 9:30.
We want to add our congratulations and best wishes to Stephanie as she prepares to relocate to an area closer to her roots in the Southeast. We hope her dream of a rural patch of land with a horse in the barn becomes a reality very soon for her.
The menu will include carne asada and other South of the Border dishes prepared by our own "Master Chef" and Sexton, Manuel Acevedo.
We need volunteers so sign up now-just call the office and leave your name on the admin voicemail!
This is the last Sunday of our program year and we will all celebrate as ONE and the following Sunday on June 19th we will begin our Summer Sundays of One Bread, One Body One Service until we kick off the program year in the Fall.
Please make plans to come and amplify our joy in this
wonderful farewell and celebration.
During the month of June, the vestry will be collecting donations for a purse for Stephanie. If you'd like to contribute, checks can be made payable to St. Stephen's, with "Rector Farewell Gift" in the memo line.
And, as the summer months unfold. our Associate Priest, the Reverend Danae Ashley, will continue to provide us her wonderful pastoral and liturgical presence, and we'll engage supply clergy for the Sundays when Danae is unavailable. We expect the summer to be a period of discernment and reflection for us. We ask for your prayers, your patience and your good will as we work through this transition in the life of our church. We're grateful for the past, and optimistic for the future; and we'll keep you posted on our progress.
Blessings to all.
At St. Stephen's
We seek to know and love Christ,
to know and love the stranger,
to know and love each other.
