As many of you may know by now, Peter Chase, our rector for the last seventeen years, plans to retire this June.
Peter has let many of us know for some time that this day was indeed coming, and although it is happening sooner than expected, it comes as no surprise. Peter has been the rock of our parish for many years, and is the reason many of us joined St. Mary’s. He, Abbie, Gaelan and Ben will be missed, and all will be remembered fondly.
A letter from Peter, and a separate letter from the Vestry, were mailed to parish members this past week. Copies of these two letters can be viewed here:
We plan to keep the parish informed of plans for Peter’s retirement, as well as the transition to a new rector, through this website as well as announcements in church, by email, and the Good News.
