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

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.
