St. John and St. Saviour

Mutual Study of Ministry: As part of our Letter of Agreement among St. Andrew & John, St. Saviour, Father Tim and the Diocese, we have committed to participating in a Mutual Study of Ministry process after eighteen months together.  Both Vestries met with Canon Missioner Heidi Shott and are now conducting one-on-one interviews. If you receive a phone call this month asking to schedule an interview, please try to be generous with your time and opinions:  it will be very helpful.  Not everyone will be interviewed, but if you want to make sure your views are heard, you may volunteer for an interview by contacting your warden (Pamela Smith, Sr. Warden (St. Saviour); Bunny Watts, Sr. Warden (St. Andrew & John); Linda Foster, Jr. Warden (St. Saviour); Rita Redfield, Jr. Warden (St. Andrew & John).


Net Tender deadline is Sunday, 2 March 2014.
