On St. Clare’s Day we were also honored by a wonderful afternoon recital by our guest organist, Trey Clegg.
Next up was a tour of St. Clare’s gardens, given by our esteemed parishioner Jonathan Sayer, the man most responsible for creating this unique sanctuary of beauty and serenity in Blairsville that is open to all in our community.
During the service, a baptism, confirmations into the Episcopal Church, and receptions into our congregation were performed by the Bishop.
We are truly blessed by our new members and are thankful for them.
Bishop Wimberly and our priest, the Rev. Liz Schellingerhoudt, took turns introducing our newest (and newly baptized) parishioner, Carter Ryan Lejeune, to the congregation.
Also making this a special day was the dedication of our new organ, and the magnificent playing by our guest organist, Trey Clegg.
