New Rector Called by St. Paul's, Benicia

The Rev. Annie Pierpoint Mertz, above with her son and husband Andrew, sent this letter to St. Paul's, Benicia. Her first Sunday will be Sept. 2.

"I am so excited to serve as your next rector! It has been a joy to learn about this place and the amazing work that God is doing with and through you. I'm impressed with the way this community looks to the future while maintaining a solid foundation in tradition, and I see my own values reflected in the way you incorporate children and youth into the life of the church. It will be an honor to come alongside you and join in your ministry. ...

" I sense that God has great things in store for this parish, and I'm delighted to be a part of it. 'Til we meet again, may God bless and keep you!"
