With a mixture of sadness and gratitude, we note that our deacon, The Rev. Vaughn Vigil, will take his leave from us in July, to be reassigned by the bishop. His last Sunday with us will be July 1.
Vaughn has been a much-loved presence among us, most visibly at Sunday services and Liturgy and Living, and also in the delivery of pastoral care and the advancement of our justice ministries. He brought biblical scholarship, a deep and compassionate understanding of the struggles of marginalized persons, and an openness of heart that have enriched us all. We pray that he will long continue to serve in our diocese, and know that he will continue to advance the Kingdom of God through the use of his many gifts.
Please be sure to join us at a festive coffee hour after the 9:30 service on Sunday, July 1, to thank Vaughn personally for his service.
