It is rare to make an important announcement that is at the same time both sad and joyful, but this is one of those occasions. Eleanor, our wonderful Parish Administrator, has announced that she will be leaving St John’s Church in mid August. While we will miss her greatly because of her outstanding work for us, and I will miss her personally for her knowledge, dedication and friendship, Eleanor will be expanding her private practice as a Clinical Counsellor.
Eleanor joined us four years ago (I can’t believe how that time flew!), and has been a very hard working and talented Parish Administrator. In that time she has helped with and been instrumental in many projects including the new website, revising the look and liturgy of the bulletin, learning new bookkeeping procedures and many others. I would like to thank Eleanor on behalf of all of you for her years of exceptional service to our community, as well as wish her all the very best in her new journey. We are hoping Eleanor will be able to join us on the Sunday of her last week with us so you will be able to join me in thanking her personally.
The Rev. Patrick Blaney
