All Saints’ Episcopal Church
We welcome, serve and love all unconditionally
through Jesus Christ
THIS WEEK AT ALL SAINTS:
Yesterday, we said “see you later” to our diocesan intern, Mitchell Felton. Mitchell spent 6 months with us as he is in discernment for ordination. We are sad to see him go, but I know his many gifts and talents will be used to the glory of God in whatever capacity he is called.
Mitchell wrote of his experience with us in a post on Facebook which he graciously gave me permission to quote.
“We Unconditionally Welcome, Serve, and Love All Through Jesus Christ”.
What a pleasure it has been interning at All Saints’ Episcopal Church the last six months and to work alongside Charles Davis in my Holy Orders discernment. Words won’t do justice for the gratitude I have for everyone there, so I hope my actions make up for it.
*I am not fully ready, but I am willing*
