Dear Members of the St. Paul's Community,
An Easter Appeal, in a normal year, would have arrived at your home by snail mail, asking on colored stationary for a special Easter offering in a dedicated envelope. This is not a normal year.
This year your Vestry has been very caught up in its responsibility to take the recommendation of the Ministry Discernment Committee and decide, on behalf of all of you, to call a new Rector. It is appropriate that this should be happening at Holy Week, when we celebrate Jesus' having taken the plunge, whereby he leads us through death and resurrection into the new covenant of love for one another.
The process is not yet complete, but we hope to make an announcement on Sunday, April 12th at the 10 o'clock service. So this Easter you get a short email, thanking you for your prayers and support throughout these years and especially now, and asking you to once again be generous in your offerings this Easter.
With love, Jon
