Welcome home to our Senior Warden Sylvia and our Assisting priest Colville from a month of wild dance moves in Vienna! Rumor has it they may demonstrate a Waltz during announcement time on February 5th.
Gail Rolfe and I wing off this week for a Cristosal Board meeting in San Salvador, my final board meeting as I complete 12 years of service as Vice-President to this human-rights organization and pass the baton!
Gail and I are flying first-class:
Sad word comes of the death of William Robert Kerler on November 13, 2016 in Charlottesville, Virginia. Bill, age 87, was active in the Episcopal Church his entire life, and together with his wife Judy, was quite active at St. Edmund’s before relocating to Virginia. Judy Kerler preceded Bill in death, and he is survived by his wife Elizabeth Meiburg. May he rest in peace and rise in glory.
