3rd Sunday After Pentecost

New Call for Father Robÿn Announced
 
During today’s services, Father Robÿn announced to the congregation that he’s accepted a new call to serve as rector of St. Mary’s in Tuxedo Park, New York.  The audio of his sermon and announcement are attached.
 
During a special meeting of the Vestry on Wednesday, June 21, Father Robÿn tendered his resignation and it was reluctantly accepted. Letters from Father Robÿn and Lorie Henry, Rector’s Warden, are being mailed to all parishioners:

Lorie Henry’s letter
 
His last Sunday will be on July 16 and the diocese is already working on identifying an interim pastor; until then, Father Graff has graciously agreed to take most of the services.
 
From Father Robÿn: “It’s been my joy and privilege to serve as 31st rector of Trinity Church Oxford for the last eight years. This church will always have a special place in my heart. Pete and I wish you abundant blessings in the future and ask for your prayers as we start a new chapter of our lives at St. Mary’s.”
