Farewell Sunday at Saint Paul's   
Rex _ Dylan Griffiths are Baptised_

Saint Paul's Church filled with members of the chaplaincy community and many friends to celebrate the retirment of our chaplain, Father Walter Raymond OGS. The service featred the Baptism of two boys, Rex and Dylan Griffiths and this, in Father Walter's opinion, was a great way to bring a close to 10 years of ministry at Saint Paul's.

Bishop Barsi with Father Walter

Archbishop Bernard Barsi of Monaco was pleased to join the Anglican community for the farewell and presented Father Walter with the bronze medallion of the Archdiocese of Monaco in recognition of his contribution to building good ecumenical relations in the Principality.

At the conclusion of the service, Joann Keable presented Father Walter with funds she had collected to cover the cost of Sparky the dog's airfare to Canada and to purchase a winter coat for Father Walter's lively four-legged friend.

Beach Party at Miami Plage

Following the service, the congregation moved along to the "Miami Plage" restaurant on Larvotto Beach where a lovely meal was enjoyed in the company of friends.


Beah Party 
At the conclusion of the lunch, Warden Tim Humphreys presented Father Walter with a purse of nearly 4,000€ collected in his honour which Father Walter was delighted to receive, reporting that he would put this gift to good use towards the purchase of the first new car he's ever owned on his return to Canada.

Good friends

While at times a mist of emotions covered the celebrations, Sunday's time at the beach was primarily an opportunity to enjoy the strengths of friendship and community that make Saint Paul's such a wonderful church.
