The Breezeway Entrance Landscape Committee
is pleased to provide a status report on raising the $10,000 to fund the landscaping leading to the breezeway connecting the Parish Hall and The All Saints Chapel. The good news is that we are halfway along on our goal. Both trees have been purchased, and a donation has been given to fund the irrigation system. Now we are relying on your generosity to help us finance the balance. If you did not receive information about making a memorial donation/contribution, brochures are available in the Narthex (the entrance of the Church). Our thanks to those of you who have contributed. For those of you who have it in mind to help. Thank you for keeping the Breezeway Landscape Project growing -- Dick Boyden, Chair of Breezeway Landscape Committee
Our Sunday services were special indeed last week. The ending of my pastoral relationship was done liturgically through all of you laying hands on me and the wardens praying over me.
I can’t thank you enough for the warmth and the generosity of the farewell celebration for me last Sunday. I was really overwhelmed with joy by those who spoke to me, those who came especially for the luncheon, and the beauty of the upper hall.
Sometimes parting words are spoken that haven’t been shared before. I was surprised by your comments and your affection. I truly believe that we all worked together to do the tasks of the Interim Period. You held me up in prayer and in my role as Interim Priest. The lay leaders did a terrific job, sometimes with sacrificial amounts of time and effort. Thank you for that commitment to the parish.
The abundant and beautiful annuals you gave me from each table at the luncheon have found a happy home in our garden, and the generous purse is really appreciated. A special thanks also to all who provided wonderful food and did the work of setup and cleanup. It’s a sign of the spirit of St. Barnabas that your senior warden pitched right in with cleaning and was pushing an enormous dry mop all around the parish hall.
I couldn’t speak with all of you individually, but please know that you will all be in my prayers. It was a privilege to serve among you as your priest, and I will take many wonderful memories with me. I wish you well as your search for your new rector reaches its final stage, and I predict continued growth and vitality in the St. Barnabas community.
Godspeed, Rev. E. Louise Forrest
