To do this properly and because we want to find the very best candidate, I do not anticipate we will fill the position by this September. I am very glad and grateful that parishioner Katie McGervey has accepted my invitation to serve as Interim Director of Children’s Ministry. This is a part-time paid position; Katie and I will first coordinate with Pattie, and then recruit additional parishioners as needed to help in leading our Sunday School and other children’s programs for the fall.
Please hold Pattie, Katie, and all the children of St. Columba’s in your prayers. This is an extraordinary ministry; as Pattie built upon the foundation she received, so will we build on the foundation that Pattie has laid and, as the Apostle Paul reminds us, there is one true foundation, who is Christ Jesus our Lord.
