Welcome Father Grant Wiseman!
You have received a most informative letter from Senior Warden, Chuck Gregory, announcing that Father Grant Wiseman will become our new Rector. He and his wife, Heather Wiseman, will be here by August 1, 2022. Look for additional information each week in this newsletter. Those who have met Father Grant and Heather during the search and vetting process – the Search Committee, the Vestry, Dr. Taintor, the School Board Members and personnel, and other church leaders – enthusiastically await their arrival. The Bishop said, “He will love you all”. That is quite a statement.
