Benefit Concert Featuring Joseph Firecrow
Joseph Firecrow is a Native American flutist from the Cheyenne tribe. Firecrow has many handcrafted wooden flutes. Each bring a different and beautiful sound to his music. In February he came to St. Paul’s for a benefit concert, after the earthquake in Haiti. His performance included storytelling, in his native tongue
and music, which he composed to be reflective of his life and the world around him. His music was thoroughly enjoyed by all in attendance and gratefully contributed to the success of our fundraiser. Many thanks to all who made this performance possible.
Celebration of New Ministry
On January 13, 2010, St. Paul’s Church celebrated the installation of Rev. Christopher Webber as our thirty-eighth Pastor. The Rt. Rev. Laura Aherns presided over the service with many clergy of the diocese participating. Senior Warden, Lisa Cosgrove, and Junior Warden, David Weik presented Rev. Webber to the Bishop for installation. Members of the congregation and clergy from within the diocese read the Old Testament and New Testament lessons and then presented Rev. Webber with the symbols of his ministry including a Bible, water, stole, prayer book, oil, keys, Canons, and hymnal. The Rev. Thomas J. Furrer served as guest preacher for the evening celebration. His message reminds us that God has hopes and a plan for the future. He has given us all gifts to share and use in the unity of faith, with a purpose to invite all into the kingdom of God. Let us welcome Rev. Christopher Webber as our Vicar.
