Celebrating Michael Austin
St. Dunstan's will gather to celebrate music director Michael Austin's ministry with us on Sunday, December 9 at 10 a.m. between the two services. Michael has been with us 4 years and has become a beloved part of our congregation. He was confirmed as an Episcopalian here, and supported the refinement of the 9 a.m. service in the church. Please come and wish him a fond farewell as he begins his new work as head of the School of Music at Louisiana Tech University in Ruston, LA. Michael will sing "Comfort Ye/Every Valley Shall Be Exalted" from Handel's "Messiah" at the late service on Dec. 9 as well - a rare treat to hear!
Michael will be with us at St. Dunstan's through Christmas Eve services.
As part of the upcoming transition in our music staff, beginning on December 15, our Interim Music Director, Joey Arkfeld, can be reached at music@stdunstansbethesda.
