Dear Holy Comforter Family,
It is with joy that I inform you of the acceptance of a call for our Senior Associate Rector, by the Rev. Ann Gillespie. Ann is an extremely talented priest -- preacher, teacher, pastor, and liturgist. I am delighted for what her companionship and leadership will mean to us all at Holy Comforter.
An additional title for Ann is
Director of the Center for Wellness and Spirituality (more about this coming soon) at Holy Comforter as we consider ways to communicate so much of what we do to the outside world. She will help us to further develop and support this kind of work here.
I give thanks for the thoughtful and prayerful work of our discernment committee, and for their care for all the candidates. Please thank Katie Krogh, Andrew Payze, Christa Hyland, Susan McGuire, and our wardens, Kip and John for their support.
Please join me in welcoming Ann as she begins here June 1, 2019.
With gratitude in Christ,
