Aid to Rescue Mission
Sign up now for our Congregational Life
workshop, to be held July 8 from 8:30am - 4pm
in Myrick Hall. Please come!  This workshop is an
important first step in our search for a new
priest.  During the course of the day, we will
engage in self-examination as a congregation in
order to help us determine:
•Who are we, and what would we say about
our identity as a parish?
•Where do we want to be in two years, five
years, and more?
• What qualities would we like in our next
We look forward to a visitation from Canon
Raymond Raney, Canon the the Ordinary, who will
be with us for part of our Congregational Life
Saturday and meet with the Bishop's Committee. 
Canon Raney will also preach on July 9, and will be
available to answer questions about the vicar
search process after the service.
