Rev. Delia Fay joined by diocesan clergy at St. Nicholas, Paradise

On Sept. 12, the people of St. Nicholas', Paradise, gathered together in their church building for the first time since the Camp Fire broke out last Nov. Several clergy from our diocese were present at the Evening Prayer Service that was led by the Rev. Delia Fay, who is the long term supply priest for the congregation from St. Nick's. Joining her were the Rev. Ann Sullivan, the Rev. Anne Powell, the Rev. Lew Powell, and the Rev. Canon Andrea McMillin.

Members were able to greet, pray, and worship together, alongside visitors from St. John's, Chico, and the Office of the Bishop. Canon Andrea brought greetings, saying, "Even as we are healing from great pain, and some of us are still working through great grief, this prayer service in this space is a stepping stone on the path to healing. We all stand here together on that path - and Bishop Megan is with us in that healing. The bishop's office, the whole diocese, we pray for you and with you, bringing resources and support as we continue towards the new horizon that God is calling us to."
