From the Rector

Dear Calvary Parishioners,

It is my pleasure to introduce Bradley Kauffman, Calvary's new Family Service Musician.

Bradley will join Children and Family Minister Sally Engelbert in the worship music leadership at the 9:30 Family Service starting on Sundays. Bradley brings his experience as a church musician to us, along with a special attentiveness to ways to introduce young people to the richness of our musical tradition.

You can read more about Bradley in his introduction below. Please join me in offering Bradley and his family a warm welcome.

The Reverend Allison English
