330th Anniversary Evensong, Sunday, September 23, 2018.
THANK YOU!!! to all who participated in our FESTIVAL EVENSONG, THE FINAL OF OUR THREE CELEBRATIONS OF OUR 330th ANNIVERSARY, SUNDAY, SEPT 23RD.
Thank you to Bishop Shin, our Bishop Suffragan of New York, who presided at the liturgy and spoke eloquently about the parish in his Greeting. Thank you to Fr. Nigel Massey, our preacher, who shared stories and insights about our Huguenot heritage. Great Thanks to Philip and the Choir for wonderful music! Special Thanks to Robert Puleo for composing a beautiful setting of the “Magnificat” for our 330th Anniversary and sharing with us once again his vibrant setting of the “Te Deum”. Thank you to the Deacons ( all three in leadership roles), Vergers, Acolytes, Lectors, Ushers, and Altar Guild for serving with dedication to allow us to enjoy the beauty of worship. And WOW! What a Reception – terrific to look at and marvelous to eat – great fellowship also! Thanks to Lorna and all her ECW helpers for a grand occasion. The Evensong and Reception were both a most fitting celebration of what God has done for our spiritual ancestors and for us in our era!
