Around the Parish
May 2019
This past Sunday was a wonderful day in so many ways, but also bittersweet.

“Thank you, thank you, thank you,” to so many of you for so many things.

The lovely words – spoken and written; the thoughtful and sometimes funny gifts; the hugs, the laughter and the occasional tear; and, of course, the delightful party on the lawn.

April 30 th was my last “official” day as your rector. Sr. Warden Patrick is in charge of the workings of the parish, Fr. David is in place for your Sunday services and pastoral needs, and Fr. Jamie will be here early in June.

As you know, I am off next week to be the Interim Rector at Holy Spirit, Gulf Shores, where I hope to see many of you during the summer at our 9:00 a.m. service.

My gratitude, my prayers and my love will be with you all, until we meet again.

God bless you and keep you and St. Luke’s.

Fr. Rusty+
