We want to be sure you know about the planned festivities to celebrate 40 years of God’s faithfulness through the Yates’ years here at our church. These events will take place on Memorial Day weekend, May 25-26, 2019.
On Saturday, May 25, we will have a parish-wide celebration at Bishop O’Connell High School (6600 Little Falls Road, Arlington, VA 22213) from 5:30 to 8:00 p.m. We’ll enjoy light finger food, cookies, and fellowship from 5:30 to 6:30 and then a fun program from 6:30 to 8:00 p.m. This will be an informal gathering for celebration, laughter, skits, testimonies, etc. (similar to our old parish retreats at Shrine Mont, for those who remember those days). We planned the schedule to be convenient for families with young children. Childcare will be provided for children ages 0-4 during the 6:30-8:00 p.m. program.
On Sunday, May 26, we will gather again for worship at Bishop O’Connell at 10:00 a.m. and celebrate John’s last Sunday as our rector. Bishop Guernsey will be present as well as all of John and Susan’s children and grandchildren. The bishop will bless John and Susan and formally launch Sam Ferguson as our new rector that morning, giving thanks for such a happy transition! We will have childcare for children ages 0-4 during this service.
