Three to be commissioned as lay readers and chalice bearers at St. George’s Anglican Church
Published: Oct 24, 2013
The month-long celebrations for the 65th anniversary of the dedication of St. George’s Anglican Church will come to a conclusion with the commissioning of three new lay readers and chalice bearers to the Anglican faith.
The Rt. Reverend Laish Boyd Sr. will commission Andrew Knowles, Evans Oralhomme and Keith Bethel for St. George’s on Wednesday, October 29 at 7:30 p.m.
“... These gentlemen have proven through their demeanor, service and character, their suitability to be elevated to this new ministry,” said Archdeacon Kingsley Knowles, rector of the parish. “St. George’s Church has been their spiritual home from birth, and they have maintained their membership and contributed to its well-being for their entire lives.”
The commissioning of the new lay readers will take place during the Dedication Rite, Solemn Evensong, Sermon and Benediction of the Blessed Sacrament.
“We are so thrilled that the commissioning of these lay readers will take place during our dedication service,” said Adrian Archer, chairman of the 65th anniversary committee.
“It is fitting that as we celebrate the past and present history of our church, our future is being installed right in front of us. Andrew, Evans and Keith represent a bright future for the church in general, and St. George’s Church in particular, and we are pleased to see them take this new role in the church.
Celebrations surrounding the 65th anniversary of the dedication of St. George’s Anglican Church continue next week when former Assistant Curate of the Parish The Rev’d Whitfield Hutcheson returns to the “Valley” to conduct two days of mission services, Monday, October 28 and Tuesday, October 29 at 7:30 p.m.
The mission services are intended to bring home the message of family of faith as the church concentrates on their 65th anniversary theme, “We Are Family”.
