Senior Warden Troy McFarlane’s Note To The Parish:
Thank you all for helping us to show Father Tom and Maryjane how important they have been to our parish. I’m sure they felt the love. I would especially like to thank the Celebration Planning team for all their efforts: Louise Boehm, Ellen Corriveau, Pat Joy, Bob Chagnon, Bob Jugenheimer, Moe Lavallee, Paula Kern, Carole Noonan, Ed Gaidos and Father Patrick, for planning the Service and the Retirement celebration.
As you are all aware, we began this process by establishing three teams, the Retirement Planning, the Prayer Team, and the Discernment Committees.
We printed our prayer for the parish and distributed them several months ago, I am hopeful that you have all been praying for us during this process. The prayer team has been steadfast in their prayer for us. The Discernment Committee, led by Kathy Sutton, has completed their review of our website and have accumulated the documents and content required to update the website. They will be working with our website folks to get the new content in place.
That being said, it is time for us to begin the official actions required by the Diocese to transition to a new Rector. We (the Vestry) have a meeting scheduled with our Consultant from the Diocese (Lee Ann Tolzmann) for October 18, 2016. She will also be here on Sunday October 30th at the 9:45 service to meet the parish. We will work with Lee Ann to identify an Interim for Trinity. We will also begin to get input from all of you to determine the future needs of our parish. I have included here a Link to the “Leaving Well Policy” from the Diocese.
