Hello Calvary Family,

Please join me in Thanking Rev. Roger Foote for his service to Calvary this month. He came in to help Calvary in our time of transition and performed admirably. February 28th will be his last Sunday as our celebrant. Please wish him well. Calvary was served well.

Now please join me in Welcoming our March celebrant Rev. Robert Moore. Calvary has been blessed to have encountered supply priests that are familiar with our family. In our conversations we found out that Rev. Moore has been a frequent attendee of our 8 AM service.

A big "Thank You!" to David McKenney, our outgoing Treasurer. David has been a strong steward for Calvary's fiscal responsibility balanced with outreach and giving to those less fortunate. He will be missed.

Interim update:

The Vestry members has been selected for the Interim Interview Committee and throughout the coming days our chair will be approaching parish members to round out the committee. Your willingness to join the committee is a true service to our Calvary family.

Please send in any straggling 2016 pledges -- our church mission call to service, inside and outside of our Calvary family, greatly depends on these funds of faith.
God Bless Calvary,
Daren Grayton
Sr. Warden

A lmighty God, you know that we have no power in ourselves to help ourselves: Keep us both outwardly in our bodies and inwardly in our souls, that we may be defended from all adversities which may happen to the body, and from all evil thoughts which may assault and hurt the soul; through Jesus Christ our Lord, who lives and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit, one God, for ever and ever.  Amen.

See you at Church!
