Dear Friends in Christ:

Our annual meeting will be on Sunday, January 30, beginning with the Holy Eucharist at 9:30, followed by a potluck brunch, and then the business meeting. We ask those who can to bring a dish to share.

We will follow our recent custom of canceling the Saturday Vigil Mass the day before and encourage us all to worship together at the Annual Meeting. This gives a rare opportunity to visit with one another, whether our usual service is on Saturday or Sunday.

In addition to the usual agenda, such as election of Vestry members, we will be asked to approve a revision of the Parish By-Laws. These have not been reviewed or revised for many years. Draft copies of the revised By-Laws went out last fall.

This coming Sunday, January 16, we will have an open conversation for those wanting to discuss the proposed revision. This conversation will take place in the Parish Hall, following fellowship time at Coffee Hour.
