Vicar's News - 5 December 2021

Farewell to Michelle

This weekend we farewell The Reverend Michelle Wang who will be leaving us in January and who will be on holidays from Monday.

As is the case with Assistant Curates, they leave to take up another appointment after two years, but we have been fortunate to have had Michelle here for three years while she completed her studies. Michelle will be commissioned as Priest-in-Charge of St David's Moorabbin on 15 January. We thank Michelle for her big contribution, particularly to our Chinese ministry. Please join her after each service for a drink and to say farewell.


St Andrew's Day lunch

Thank you to all those who assisted in making the lunch last Sunday such a great event. A special thank you to Pantry for the nifty lunch boxes, and the take-home bag for supper. The food was thoroughly delicious, as was the company and the musical accompaniment provided by our choral lay clerks.
