Announcement from The Right Reverend Sandra Fyfe, Diocesan Bishop:

I am happy to appoint Archbishop Ron to serve as Priest-in-Change of the Parish of St. Luke's Hubbards from May 10th - August 31st, 2021. In this role, Archbishop Ron will be responsible for providing general oversight of the Parish in the absence of a Rector, providing pastoral care on an as-needed basis and developing a worship schedule with the lay ministry team.
I am grateful that Archbishop Ron is willing to serve in this role and know that the Parish will be blessed by the gifts he brings. I am sure that you will benefit from his encouragement and support as you consider what model of ministry will best serve the needs of St. Luke's as it strives to serve the wider community and God's world.
