Annual Meeting 2021
Please mark your calendar for the Annual Meeting of the Parish, which will take place via Zoom on Sunday, March 14, immediately following worship.
For those who have never attended an Annual Meeting before, it is an important moment in our congregational life in which we hear brief reports from the Rector and various parish ministries and ratify the parish budget. In addition, we celebrate and give thanks for the many contributions of those members of the Vestry who are completing their terms, and we elect new Vestry members for the upcoming cycle.
Please read this one-page "Proposed Modification and Amendment of Bylaws for Consideration at the March 14,2021 Annual Meeting" in advance of the meeting. These changes have been proposed unanimously by the current Vestry and, according to our by-laws, must be made available to the congregation 30 days before the Annual Meeting.
I hope to see you on March 14 as we enter into another year of mission and ministry together. ~ Patty+
