Back to Church Sunday is something we can do every week.

PLEASE NOTE: Vestry approved Renew We would like to thank our parishoners who have supported thus far. By creating a Renew Trust we hope to provide a form of sustainability for the parish with contributions from estates, wills, and planned giving, etc...information was presented at Vestry. Flyers are available for anyone who may consider contributing to the RENEW fund of the parish. Our fund will be invested to defer future parish music costs.

VESTRY

We had a record attendance at Vestry for 2017 and presented numbers that pleased everyone. For the first time we had as many baptisms as funerals, which is a great measurement for a retirement community like Kingsville. More food than any group could eat was served for a pot luck and Diana's 2 soups were sold to raise more funds for the Cathedral. Thank you to Art who steps down as People's Warden and welcome Brandy as the new Deputy People's warden. We are truly blessed with a caring community.
