Rector Newsletter

As most of you are aware, St. M’s has the opportunity to acquire the property next to the Rectory. I want to keep you advised of activities that are occurring at St. Michael’s.  First of all, I want to ask for your support of your vestry.  I can tell you, I am extremely pleased and proud of your choices for vestry members as I see a vestry that is diverse in age and nationality and denominational.  As we become better Christians within the Anglican Tradition it is important that we retain our roots, as well as move into the future.   

Property Update

Current situation:  The vestry is deciding if there is a desire to pursue discussions on the six acres.  The vestry will decide at the next meeting if we move forward in examining future opportunities and with negotiations on the future of this property.  We have been offered first rights in acquiring this property, and we are very grateful for being given this opportunity, so  please pray for guidance and wisdom for your vestry.
