Vestry Notes from the Rector’s Warden

Although the pandemic has prevented the people of St. David’s from gathering in worship and fellowship, God is still working through us to know God in Jesus Christ and to make Christ known to others. To quote our Rector, we continue to do that “in a lot of different ways,” albeit differently than we have in the past.

St. David’s Episcopal Day School has had a terrific year under the leadership of Head of School, Margaret Biester. Students and teachers have made the most of their in-person schooldays together with no shutdowns or reported COVID-19 cases. Indeed, the word is out about SDEDS, which is fully subscribed with students for the Fall and has a significant waiting list.

Worship continues to be at the center of our religious life as a parish, and we have maintained our online presence even as we have opened up services for in-person attendance. Indeed, our online presence has broadened our reach as a church locally, nationally and even internationally. We owe our fellow parishioners Geoff Chamberlain, John Lewis and Doug Andreuzzi a debt of gratitude for leveraging our existing technological infrastructure to bring worship services to members of the parish near and far. As more people receive vaccinations and our operations open up, we will continue to make worship services at St. David’s available remotely to parishioners who are unable to attend and to the greater community and world.

“…Although this past year has been difficult for us on many levels, God has continued to work through the people of St. David’s to let Himself be known to us and to the wider world. ”

On Sunday, May 2nd, we will host an in-person and livestreamed Annual Meeting. At the meeting we will hear more about our mission and ministry over this past year. We will also be electing four new members to our Vestry: Alison Hastings, Leslie Lewis, Tim Roach, and Ian Wilcox. We encourage you to join us, beginning at 10:30 a.m.

As restrictions lift and we are given more opportunities for fellowship and worship together in the coming months, know that, although this past year has been difficult for us on many levels, God has continued to work through the people of St. David’s to let Himself be known to us and to the wider world. I look forward to seeing you all (in person!) soon.
