I'll be away this Sunday, October 24, on my annual Fall Retreat, and our Guest Celebrant and Preacher at St. Andrew's will be the Rev. Diane Shepard, retired Rector of St. Stephen's Episcopal Church, Wilkinsburg, and former Associate Rector of St. Andrew's Episcopal Church, Highland Park. Diane and her husband Paul and their children were long-time members of St. Andrew's, and it was from St. Andrew's that Diane went to seminary and then was sponsored for ordination. The "Coffee and Conversation Hour" in Brooks Hall, 10 a.m., will be an opportunity to catch up with a great friend!
And I will of course have you all in my prayers while I'm up at St. Gregory's. See you next week!
