“He will send forth labourers . . . “

February will find the Church of the Holy Comforter preparing for, and, God willing, celebrating its annual parish meeting, an ordination, and a confirmation.

Junior Warden Fred Roth called a parish work day for Saturday morning, 2 February 2019, to make the church and the parish hall ready for these events.  The vestry scheduled the Annual Parish Meeting after services the following day, Sunday, 3 February 2019, and in conjunction with our monthly pot-luck luncheon.  A report on the meeting will be posted soon.

This weekend promises great joy for Holy Comforter, as the Rt. Rev. John Upham arrived to ordain the Rev. Shannon Clark to the priesthood.  Sunday, 10 February 2019, Bishop Upham is to confirm Thomas Graves, our organ scholar and chorister.  Please join us and support Thomas.

Celebrating our 35th Anniversary

We celebrated our 35th anniversary with a special mass at 10 a.m. Sunday, 14 October 2018, and with a covered dish dinner in the Parish Hall afterward.  The mass was celebrated by the Rt. Rev. William C. Wiygul, retired, one of 15 founding members of the parish and a former rector of Holy Comforter.

We thank our guests for joining us as we gave thanks to Almighty God for his great goodness to us over the last three and a half decades.  It has been a time of joys and sorrows, of trials and triumphs, always with God’s help and many blessings.
