Bishop Megan meets with retired clergy

Bishop Megan met with retired clergy and their spouses on Friday, Aug. 30 at St. George's, Carmichael. The afternoon started off with Holy Eucharist and ended with lunch.

Reflecting upon the gathering, Bishop Megan said, "We had a wonderful time having lunch together and wish to thank our gracious hosts at St. George’s, Carmichael. What a pleasure to meet and get to know so many of our retired clergy and their spouses and it's good to know that the widowed spouses of the clergy are also included.

I was struck by how very active the retired clergy of this diocese are, in that they continually provide supply to the many pulpits throughout our diocese. We need them and are grateful for both their pulpit ministry and their ministry of presence."

"I am also grateful for the chaplain of this group (pictured above), the Rev. Dr. Christine Leigh-Taylor, and her organization. This meal together is a way for retired clergy to create collegial relationships and to fellowship with their bishop and each other. I am so glad to have the opportunity to spend this time with those who have served so graciously."
