VESTRY NOTES

OCTOBER 2017 UPDATE

Holy Cow! – Our most sincere appreciation to everyone who participated in St. Paul’s congregational assessment survey.  Rev. Canon Andrea McMillin will facilitate a discussion of the assessment results on Monday, October 9th, beginning at 6 PM in the Parish Hall, and all members of the congregation are welcome.  Your perspectives, experiences, and aspirations will be folded into the Parish Profile for calling our next Rector.

Rev. Jeanne’s tenure as the Rector of St. Paul’s is drawing to a close; it is a time to look back, and a time to look forward; a time for joy, and a time for sadness.  It is also a time to give thanks and praise to God for what Rev. Jeanne has given us in our lives together.   Please save the dates for two special events in December, and join us in celebrating the gift of her ministry at St. Paul’s.
 
CELEBRATION OF MINISTRY at Sunday Services, December 3

Rev. Jeanne will celebrate and preach for the last time at both Sunday services.  The order of these services will include a proper sendoff, and after each service, everyone in the congregation will have an opportunity to offer her their personal best wishes at a farewell reception.

RETIREMENT GALA on Sunday, December 10th, at the Benicia Clock Tower beginning at 5PM

All members of our parish and a guest list of Rev. Jeanne’s family, friends and colleagues in our community and the Diocese are cordially invited to a retirement party, sponsored by St. Paul’s in her honor.  The evening will include a reception, dinner and a program of special tributes and fun.
