FROM THE DESK OF

The Rev. Ledlie I. Laughlin
Rector , St. Columba's
Episcopal Church
Washington, DC
Sisters and Brothers in Christ,

In addition to this Sunday's   Annual Meeting, the Wardens and I announce a   Special Parish Meeting, on Sun., Mar. 26, 12:30-2 pm in the Great Hall to provide a status report and discuss our "Foundation for the Future" 2012-2017 Capital Campaign. Topics for discussion include:
  • A report on work completed and pending;
  • Why the vestry prioritized projects as it did;
  • What's involved in renovating the Church Nave;
  • A report on balance of pledges received and paid;
  • Where we go from here (options for a future campaign and completion of the work in the Church Nave).
The format will provide an opportunity to share concerns and hopes, past decisions and future plans. Please click below to read a collection of past newsletter articles addressing the spending of campaign funds. If there is a particular topic you'd like to have discussed, please notify me in advance.

I look forward to seeing you at our Annual Meeting this Sunday, Feb. 12 at 10 am in the Church Nave. Together, we will offer thanks to those stepping down from leadership roles; offer prayers for those stepping up; receive an update on the annual budget; and hear stories of ministry, connections and the gifts of the Spirit.

Peace, Ledlie
