Dear Friends,

A lot is happening at our church. First, I’m saddened by Ron’s departure and his health challenges. We continue to pray for him and his transitions.

This Sunday, the music director search committee has its first meeting. Our aim is to ensure reasonable continuity and high-quality music at St. Monica’s. We are working on hiring an interim choirmaster and section leaders. Dick Rumpf and I had two preliminary interviews with two candidates for organist/choirmaster on Thursday. We also have our first Music Director Search meeting this Sunday, and I am pleased with those who are taking part: Dick Rumpf, Sue Lemons, Susan Beauregard, Gordon Brown, and Raud Johnson.

Please see the notes in out eNews that describe so much that we have to celebrate – a baptism this Sunday, our Healing Ministry, the Daughters of the King, a thoughtful reflection from our Treasurer, Youth Confirmands, and a triumph of prayer.

As always, if you have any questions or would like to discuss some spiritual concerns, please don’t hesitate to reach out to me.

Peace and grace,

Fr. Jonathan
