Renewal of Ministry and Welcoming of the New Rector
It’s hard to believe that Suzanne and Tracy have been with us for a year already – it’s been a fast, furious, and fabulous first year and we are FINALLY going to properly celebrate All Saints-style with a Renewal of Ministry and Welcoming of the New Rector liturgy and party! This is a traditional Episcopal service for when a new Rector is called to a church and is also an opportunity for all of us to recommit to the beautiful and varied ways of Ministry that we do as a congregation and community and, of course, a great excuse to have an All Saints party!
Join us September 10 at 2:30pm for the liturgy and the party afterwards. As luck would have it, our stretch of Hermitage is having their block party that day, so we’ll have a street festival and bouncy house on hand after the service!
We’ll be serving food and beverages in the courtyard in a sort of “tea time” style and we’re asking for volunteers to help by making a plate or two of classic tea sandwiches for us all to snack on during the party. All you need to do is make a batch of your favorite tea sandwiches and if you need an easy recipe, here are a few options: Cucumber Sandwiches, Ham and Cheese Tea Sandwiches, Trio of English Summer Tea Sandwich Recipes.
You can sign up here.
Thanks in advance for helping out,
John Williams and Susie Griffith, Co-Wardens
