Thursday Thoughts

This Sunday will be a special one:  we will be celebrating the life and ministry of Katie Wilcox, Chester native and member of the United Church who founded Lady Doak College in Madurai, India.  The morning will include a display of material pertaining to both Katie and the College, a brief biography of Katie’s life, reflections by Peg Lieberman and words of greeting and gratitude from Dr. Christianna Singh, Principal at Lady Doak.  It’s been a while since we have been able to remember and honor Katie’s work and we hope you’ll join us in celebration this Sunday.
 
Two other celebrations to note.  Next Sunday, May 29, will be the last time our choir sings as an ensemble until the fall, and we want to thank them for bringing us such delightful worship in music, so we are designating the day as Choir Appreciation Sunday.  Come say Thank You to our gifted and enthusiastic group of choristers, as well and a huge Thank You to Karli for her leadership and musicianship.  The following Sunday we will say Thank You, Farewell and Godspeed to Mari Lynd, for more than seven years the United Church’s able and gifted Parish Administrator.  Mari’s final day of work with us will be June 9, so please be sure to join us Sunday June 5 as we recognize Mari’s years of service.  We also want to send our thanks and good wishes to church bookkeeper Jody Abel, who will be relinquishing her responsibilities with us at the end of June.  Jody has served our church with excellence, and we are grateful for her work with us.

 
Watch for an email next week introducing our new Parish Administrator and Bookkeeper.
