One of the tasks that fall to the Senior Warden in the absence of a Rector or Interim Rector is the scheduling of supply clergy. Cynthia Whitacre took care of this through the end of June and arranged for us to hear a variety of voices from the pulpit. This Sunday we will be deviating from her schedule because David McCoy will be unable to be with us. Instead Carin Delfs will be our celebrant and preacher. This will be her first visit to St. Stephens.
I have been working on the schedule for July. Originally we were to have a visitation by Bishop Breidenthal on July 17, however, he needed to change the date and we will not see him until sometime in 2017.
Our schedule so far:
May 29 Carin Delfs, Preacher and Celebrant
June 5 Sherm Everett, Preacher; Hanci Newberry, Celebrant
June 12 Susan Beem Beery, Preacher and Celebrant
June 19 Bruce Smith, Preacher and Celebrant
June 26 Karl Stevens, Preacher and Celebrant
July 3 Michael Jupin, Preacher and Celebrant
July 10 Shem Everett, Preacher; Hanci Newberry, Celebrant
July 17 To Be Determined
July 24 Michael Jupin, Preacher and Celebrant
July 31 Karl Stevens, Preacher and Celebrant
August 7, Marjorie Menaul, Preacher and Celebrant
We will keep you informed as the schedule develops. Please join us on Sundays to hear some great preaching.
