Thanksgiving for a Visit from Our Bishop!
We give thanks for an amazing visit from our Bishop this past Sunday. We give thanks also for his blessing – the blessing of his presence as our Diocesan Bishop – and the blessings he conferred on us during this very special liturgy. He received Yvonne Towery into the Episcopal Church and blessed our new ornaments for worship (a banner pictured here and a holy water font). We also welcomed new members Olivia Williams and Kevin Park (and children Freddie and Wesley) and Janice Olson.
Our Bishop’s encouragement and affirmation were appreciated by all. He met with our Vestry following “Feast of Friends.” During this gathering with parish leaders he affirmed our gift of being a hospitable and welcoming parish and urged us to continue on the path of deepening our effective community partnerships through the Abbey initiative.
