As we look forward to the ordination of the Very Rev. W. Nicholas Knisely as the 13th Bishop of Rhode Island on November 17, 2012, we remain mindful of how important it is to also express appreciation to our outgoing leader.
We ask that you join us for a Celebration of Bishop Wolf's Ministry on Sunday, September 23, 2012 at St. Luke’s Episcopal Church in East Greenwich to thank
Wolf (and her husband, Tom) for nearly 17 years of ministry with us.
The Transition Committee is arranging for delicious food, a festive atmosphere and a special slide show of photos from throughout the Bishop's years with us. All ages are welcome.
If you haven’t RSVP’d by mail or email yet, you can RSVP online here and/or donate online to Bishop Wolf's gift. When a bishop completes his or her ministry in a diocese, it’s customary for the people of the diocese to express their thanks with a gift, and we will be presenting
Bishop Wolf and Tom with a check to help with the
expense of the trip to
they have dreamed about for some time. Jerusalem
The amount of your gift – whether large or small – is less important than your joining together with others in this offering.
As we move closer to the ordination of our new bishop in November, please keep Bishop-Elect Knisely and his wife, Karen, as well as
Bishop Wolf and Tom in your prayers. We appreciate
your support and patience, and we look forward to your joining us for the
festivities on September 23rd.
