Father Walter's Last Council Meeting  

Father Walter attended his last meeting with the Saint Paul's Church Council on Tuesday, 20 June, which took place at the home of Sara & Frank Megginson. It has become the custom in recent years for the council to invite spouses, and one mother, to join them to celebrate the end of another successful season of council meetings and projects. Father Walter in his final report to the Church Council,  acknowledged the wonderful atmosphere of friendly collaboration that has characterised council life in recent years.

Nearly 150 are expected to join Father Walter for the Farewell Beach Party on Sunday, the festivities begin with Holy Communion at 10:30 at Saint Paul's.

Lay Readers Affirmed  

During the Father's Day service, June 18th, Frank Megginson's license as a Lay Reader in the Diocese in Europe was officially renewed for another 5 years.

Mary de Vachon now has _Permission to Officiate_

Earlier in the year, Mary de Vachon was issued the coveted P.O.T. (Permission to Officiate) in the Diocese in Europe which is given to Lay Ministers "of a certain age" in lieu of the 5 year license.  Mary's P.O.T. allows her to continue for an undefined term (and us to continue to benefit from) her preaching and pastoral ministry at Saint Paul's. (Mary is pictured here, on 5 June 2016, receiving a certificate from the Anglican Centre Rome for a course she attend on preaching.)
