All are Welcome!
The Episcopal Diocese of Spokane
Convention in Walla Walla this Weekend
Many of our parish have gone south to Walla Walla to attend the diocesan convention and be present for Glenda Empsall's ordination. Click here to read Glenda's biography, along with the bios of her fellow candidates. A reception to honor Glenda is slated for next Sunday, October 24, following the 10:30 a.m. service in the Parish Hall. Do plan to attend the reception and show your support of her new ministry.
Borrowing from a sermon delivered by our Presiding Bishop last Sunday, "Deacon is a word that means servant or minister, and we understand that every baptized person shares in that kind of ministry." She goes on to encourage us all to make new friends and share the "Good News," joyfully. Click here to read Katharine Jefferts Schori's sermon from last Sunday.
The Rev. Glenda Empsall.
Congratulations on your ordination, Glenda!
