The Call Committee is recommending John Telyea to our parish to be our new pastor.  There will be a dinner on Friday, January 2, at 6:00 p.m. at Newry for everyone to meet John and Karen.  Meat and beverages will be provided.  Please bring a covered dish.  John will then preach a trial sermon at the Saturday evening service and at both churches on Sunday morning.  A congregational vote will be taken after each service.  Please pray for our parish and for John as we discern God’s will for all of us.
