NEXT STEPS
TOWN HALL MEETINGS

This is a critical and exciting time for Church of Our Redeemer as we plan for life after Fr. John. To ensure that our charted course is one supported by our entire Parish community, the Vestry will be hosting a series of Town Hall meetings in the Parish Hall. Please make an effort to attend all three discussions as the topics will change.

Wednesday, May 22, 7 p.m. – We will review the Diocesan process and milestones when a priest retires, as well as start the conversation with the Parish on our strategic plan

Tuesday, June 4, 7 p.m.

Thursday, June 20, 7 p.m.

VISIT FROM THE DIOCESAN TRANSITION MINISTER

The Rev. Sarah Brockenbrough, Transition Minister for the Diocese of Virginia, will be our supply priest on Sunday, June 16. She will also meet with the parish following the 10 a.m. service. The Rev. Brockenbrough manages and oversees the deployment and transition process for clergy and congregations to ensure a faithful and successful process of calling clergy to new cures in the diocese.
