Blessings, Candles and Light

It is curious how things come to be connected. In my family there was a connection with the feast of the Purification and the feast of St. Blaise. First just a bit of background and a couple pieces of trivia. One piece of trivia is that an ancient practice of the church was to declare […]

Rev. Maryalice Sullivan: A trip into imagination

Today I spent the day at Universal Studio. The day was just as about as perfect as any day could be. It was warm, slightly cloudy with a gentle breeze. The park was filled with people, but certainly not over crowded. The lines at the rides moved quickly and, I have to say, the rides […]

Rev. Maryalice Sullivan: The man with the fancy clothes

We have just finished the Christmas season, a season among other things that is a season of gift giving. As we know gifts come in all shapes and sizes and some of the very best gifts are those that can not be wrapped, they are gifts of love and grace. They are simple moments of […]

Rev. Maryalice Sullivan: Remembrance of Grace

The Christmas season elicits memories for most of us, well at least it does for me and those memories are usually of Christmas past. This year, in a bit of quiet time, another memory came floating into my prayers. It is the memory of my dark green coat. This was no ordinary coat, it had […]

It is with great pleasure that I tell you that after a lengthy and prayerful process of discernment, we have a new Rector! The Reverend Jennifer Zogg has been called and has accepted our invitation to join our community in ministry.

Please join me in thanking our Discernment Team, led by Renee Haggerty. It was their unanimous decision that Jennifer Zogg be presented to the Vestry as candidate for Rector. After her visit with the Vestry in late January, the Vestry unanimously voted to call Jennifer as the next Rector of Church of Epiphany. Jennifer comes to Epiphany after serving seven years as Associate Rector of St. Paul's Episcopal Church in Rochester, New York. This is a program sized church where she has worked in all areas of parish life, including leading the parish during her Rector's two sabbaticals.

In some sense, however, our call and Jennifer's acceptance is about much more than "our job" and her education and qualifications. Your Vestry, Profile, Prayer and Discernment Teams sincerely believe that God is at work in this process and that our joining together in ministry is God's desire for us. As Jennifer prepares to lead our community and to worship with us, she will be seeking a community to partner with her in ministry; it goes without saying that the Parish Family of Church of the Epiphany is a wonderful partner in ministry. May the Church of the Epiphany welcome and share their ministry with Jennifer in the faithful and many loving ways you welcome and share your ministry with all people.

Jennifer's first day in the Parish office will be Tuesday, May 26 and her first Sunday at Church of Epiphany will be Trinity Sunday, May 31. Please plan to be with us on that Sunday so that we can extend a warm and joyous welcome.

In the weeks ahead, as we all move through significant transitions in our lives, please keep Jennifer, St. Paul's Episcopal Church in Rochester and the entire community of Epiphany in your prayers. In addition, please extend prayers of thanks to your Vestry, Profile, Prayer and Discernment Teams as we move forward on this exciting new journey.

Peace and blessings to you, and yours,

Christopher Utter

Sr. Warden, Church of the Epiphany
