Our long wait to welcome a new rector is almost over. We have been searching, praying and waiting since August of 2019. On Monday, April 4th the Rev. Dr. Jennifer Oldstone-Moore will officially begin her time as Rector at St. Andrew’s, Greencastle. We couldn’t be more delighted.
As we have begun planning for her first two weeks with us that encompass Palm Sunday, Holy Week and Easter, please know there will be some most wonderful opportunities to complete our Lenten journey. Have you ever painted pysanky (Ukrainian) Easter eggs? Made an Easter tree? Had a family vigil candle lit on Maundy Thursday? These are just a few of the things being talked about. Also, Rev. Jen would like the chance to start meeting parishioners, in small groups. We will be working to set up a schedule for those once she is in town. Please reach out to Renee in the church office (653-3921) or me (720-5857) and let us know if you would like to be included. We will be looking at late afternoon or early evening for those chances. If you have a time/day preference, that would also be helpful as we work to put together a schedule.
Finally, I would like to wish everyone heading out of town for spring break safe travels, a joyful respite from your daily routines, and many wonderful memories to carry back home.
Wishing you peace and good health,
