On Sunday, April 8th we said farewell to Fr. Jesse as he began his well-deserved sabbatical. Canon Pam Mott joined us to help celebrate and bless him on his journeys. Fr. Jesse was presented with a “Bowl of Blessings” by Nancy Carlson. Nancy had been secretly collecting blessings, thoughts, good wishes, poems, and words of wisdom from parishioners over the last couple of months. She then printed them on special paper, tied each with a ribbon, and placed them in a lovely antique bowl. It was a beautiful send off and we look forward to Fr. Jesse’s return at the end of July.
