Grace and peace. I hope to see you this week at St. Patrick’s. This Sunday at 10am, we will gather again in the Great Hall for worship followed by a 10-minute class on why truth telling is central to the Reclaiming Jesus movement supported by Presiding Bishop Michael Curry.
Your staff spends time every August dreaming about new offerings at St. Patrick’s that will engage the life of our community. As we approach Kick-off Sunday on September 9, I will share some of our new ideas in light of the new Sunday morning schedule. If you have ideas/inspirations, please send me a note.
Lesley Krauland has been an important contributor to the life of St. Patrick’s for many years. In 2014, she expressed an interest in pursuing ordination as a deacon. Since then, she has been preparing for ordination through prayer, study, and practicums. She will be ordained on September 22 at 10am at Washington National Cathedral. I hope that you will plan to attend.
