Renewal of Ministry

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 SandwichesHam and Cheese Tea SandwichesTrio of English Summer Tea Sandwich Recipes.

Thanks in advance for helping out,
