Here is a June 15 message from Senior Warden, Vaunie Graulty:

Greetings to friends and parishioners of St. Paul’s Church,

Yesterday was a very exciting day for our church! As you know, we called our new priest in charge, Samuel J. Smith. He was the unanimous choice of both the Search committee and the Vestry. We feel very blessed as Sam so beautifully matches the aspirations we have for our future. I am very eager for you all to meet him.

At the 8 and the 10 a.m.services on behalf of the Vestry, I read Sam’s bio and a letter from him to all of you. There are links HERE to the bio and letter and two of Sam’s sermons. One sermon includes him singing! He has a wonderful voice.

With gratitude and joy,

Vaunie Graulty

Micah 5:2-5a; Psalm 80:1-7; Hebrews 10:5-10; Luke 1:39-55 It is a real challenge for us to stay in Advent today, and not just go ahead and plunge right into Christmas.
