Sunday, October 7, was a great day for our acolytes and lay reader member.  Our Chapter of St. Stephen’s of the Order of St. Vincent was inducted at the altar rail and had their medallions, the symbol of their order, blessed by the rector, Fr. Douglas King, the chaplain of St. Stephen’s Chapter (St. Paul’s Anglican Church, Melbourne Fl.).

The occasion gave a lift to our members. It not only made official the establishment of our Chapter, it was a recognition before the Congregation of the faithful ministry of our members whose efforts enhance the beauty and gracefulness of our liturgy in a manner we hope is pleasing to God. Our plea remains the same as it always is. We desperately need new members of our Order to serve in the sanctuary. We bid your prayers for new ministers to join our group.
