St. Luke's, Auburn, welcomes the Rev. Brian Rebholtz as Rector

There was great joy as the clergy gathered together after the service. Pictured from L to R are: The Rev. Patricia Park, the Rev. Jana Branson, the Rt. Rev. Megan M. Traquair, the Rev. Brian Rebholtz, and the Rev. Bill Hefti.

Bishop Megan instituted the Rev. Brian Rebholtz as rector at  St. Luke's, Auburn on Aug. 31. It was a joyful celebration of their journey together. Rev. Brian was first their Priest-in-Charge and was recently elected their Rector.

Bishop Megan noted that the liturgy for the Renewal of Ministry with the Welcoming of a New Rector from Enriching Our Worship 4, was especially rich as it used important symbols such as: the Lectern Bible presented at the readings, a prayer book brought at the Prayers of the People, and Eucharistic gifts offered at the Great Thanksgiving, as reminders to the Rector of his work among the people. She also mentioned that the reading of the Letter of Institution was significant, as it was "issued in the first year of my consecration."
