The Personnel Committee is pleased to announce that Jessie Slade will be our new Director of Religious Education.  Jessie comes to us with a strong background in teaching, lots of enthusiasm and many creative ideas.  We definitely felt that Jessie was our strongest candidate and are so glad that she has said yes to our invitation to serve First Parish of Norwell.  Jessie's first official day will be August 7 and she will introduce herself to us more thoroughly in the August Spire.  We want to thank everyone for their support in this hiring process and we look forward to seeing how things unfold in the very near future!
