Dear Brothers and Sisters in Christ,

It is with Blessings and Honor that the Vestry announces a choice for our new Priest in Charge. Her name is Ann Grady. She is very experienced in leading churches through times of transition like the one we are currently in.

Ann’s start date will be at our online services Easter Sunday. Can’t think of a better blessing for us than to welcome Ann to our parish at such a holy time as Easter.

The current state of our country and our church family is something we have never experienced before. This will be a trying time for all of us but with thoughtful prayers and God’s guidance we can make this work.

Please join us in welcoming Ann Grady with a personal note mailed to the church or an email to her address revann2709@gmail.com.

This has been an answer to all our prayers. Welcome Ann!
