Dear people of St. Paul’s and St. Stephen’s,
It is such a joy to write to you as your official Priest-in- charge. Since I began on September 1st, I have attended vestry meetings, finance meetings, stewardship meetings, presided over numerous services, and enjoyed a wonderful picnic with you all. While this past month has been a whirlwind it is only the beginning of our work together! Over the next three years we will have countless opportunities to have fun, to learn, to worship, and to grow together. This past Sunday we had our first joint event, a picnic between the two parishes. It was wonderful to see people from both churches enjoying a meal together and starting the process of getting to know each other. Over the next year we have several opportunities planned for St. Stephen’s and St. Paul’s. Some of the events will be held at St. Stephen’s and others will be held at St. Paul’s. Everyone is invited to all events, and we encourage you to come regardless of where the events are held. Below you will see the overview of the proposed program year.
