Dear Calvary Family,
Altar Guild update:
Thank you to all who expressed the desire and interest in joining the Altar Guild.  Your service will be much appreciated.  Duane Lewis - Thank You for organizing and overseeing this important mission.  
Interim Update:
This week Calvary's vestry will meet and come to a consensus as to the make-up of our Interview Committee.  The committee will consist of members of the vestry and parish.  Once the member roster is cemented the committee will meet with Rev. Carter-Edmands to review and train on the interview process.  Please entertain this appointment if you are tapped for this important next step of the interim process.
Also please keep sending in your 2016 pledges.
God Bless our Calvary family,

O  God, whose glory it is always to have mercy: Be gracious to all who have gone astray from your ways, and bring them again with penitent hearts and steadfast faith to embrace and hold fast the unchangeable truth of your Word, Jesus Christ your Son; who with you and the Holy Spirit lives and reigns, one God, for ever and ever.  Amen.
