“For everything there is a season, and a time for every purpose under heaven…”
Acknowledging the rich ministry of Paul Kennington and Jonathan Bailey at Christ Church Cathedral, services of sending forth gave our community the chance to bless them and say our farewells with glorious music, appropriate liturgy, libations, cakes and other food, a generous purse, and some inspired silliness, too.

Here’s a tribute by Rhonda Waters in the Anglican Journal, “Five Lessons On How To Be a Priest and a Christian”
A member of the Court also made a surprise visit at the farewell reception.
Photos of the events will keep arriving, and a scrapbook is being prepared to send to Paul and Jonathan… if you want to include a photo or short note please make sure it reaches the office by November 30.
