Well, it has been four months since Gareth left. During that time the Vestry has been working on stabilizing and building the life of the church. As you know, it hasn't been easy times, but we are working through the obstacles and taking things one day at a time. Melissa has been our Bridge priest which has truly been a blessing.
Last week I received an email from the Diocese that we had a candidate for the Interim position. Well, to my surprise our own Rev. Melissa Buono was asked by the Bishop to be our Interim. Melissa took the time necessary to talk with her family, and with lots of prayers decided to accept the call. The Wardens then met with Melissa and after our discussion, we agreed. The discussion was then brought to the Vestry last night and all present voted to hire Melissa as our new Interim Priest! Thank you for all of your prayers and thank you to God for answering them in such a wonderful way.
Please congratulate and support Melissa as she guides us through our transition.
