Haven't seen Bishop-Elect Knisely out and about in RI yet? This Saturday September 15th at 9:30am you have a good chance. Bishop Wolf and Bishop-Elect Knisely will be at St. Mary's in Portsmouth to cut the ribbon to the new parish house which has just been built.
Come say hello to the Bishop Elect for the first time, and to Bishop Wolf for what may be one of the last times before she retires. After the ribbon cutting there will be fellowhip over food, tours, and even a few mini-classes in St. George's Chapel which is the great room of the new building.
It is a joyous occasion for St. Mary's, as the parish begins to reap the benefits of a little creative thought on how to be good stewards of their resources, how to be true to their mission, and how to best impact and interact with the community outside their church. Exciting plans are also in the works for the re-purposing and rehabilitation of St. Mary's old parish house. Read about it in RISEN magazine and dream big for your own home parish.
