Rev. Miranda’s Sabbatical: What you need to know…

What You Need to Know… 

If you or a member of your household would appreciate a visit for conversation and prayer, or if you have a concern about someone else in the parish, please talk to Father Jonathan, Father Tom, Father John, Deacon Laura; or contact the office (608-238-2781, office@stdustans.com) with your request, and Ann will pass it along. 

You can also email the prayer list (administered by Celia Fine) with prayer requests, as usual. If you mention that you’d welcome a visit, Celia can pass that information along. 

It’s also OK to reach out to your clergy just for a conversation about faith, life, whatever! If you have big questions in your heart, Jonathan, Tom, John or Laura would be happy to meet and chat. Get in touch, as indicated above, or stop by their “office hours”. 

If you have questions about how things are going in terms of leadership, finances, renovation planning, etc., touch base with senior warden Shirley Laedlein, junior warden Michelle Der Bedrosian, or any member of the Vestry. Or just say hello and tell them they’re doing a great job and you’re praying for them!

Our new Office Coordinator Ann is ready and willing to help with your questions! If you have a question about an event or ministry, or a general church question, contact the office. Ann will get back to you as soon as she can find an answer. 

If you have an announcement to share, please email it to the office (office@stdunstans.com) NO LATER THAN 9am, Wednesday morning. This is a firm deadline; announcements that come in later will have to be included in the next week’s E-news and News & Notes page. 

Finally, please take seriously the Congregation’s part of the Sabbatical Covenant document, especially the call to sustain your participation in the life of the parish; look for the gifts of this season, and be patient when things aren’t the way they usually are; be faithful in welcome of visitors and guests and mutual care for one another (and if you think the clergy should know something, please tell them!); and engage with the parish renewal project of building intergenerational friendships, whether by participating in special events or simply by looking for fresh opportunities for fellowship, ministry sharing and mutual care within our household of faith.
