Notes from the Parish Office

Tragedy in Florida
Many of you have heard of the very tragic events at the Episcopal School of Jacksonville, Florida last Tuesday. An employee who was dismissed in the morning by the Headmaster, Mrs. Dale Regan, returned to school in the afternoon and fatally shot Mrs. Regan, and then turned the gun on himself. No students, faculty or staff were harmed. Mrs. Regan was a great leader of the Episcopal school and had been the head of the school since 2006 and served as administrator and teacher since 1978. Please keep Mrs. Regan and her family in your prayers this weekend. May Dale Regan’s soul and all the souls of the departed, through the mercy of God, Rest In Peace. Amen †
