The Hospitality Ministry and Wardens hosted a reception following the 9:30 a.m. Eucharist to thank Donna for her ministry to us as Interim Priest. It was an amazing feast and a time to say thank you and farewell. Special guests included Donna’s family (from Allentown and Georgia), dear friends from Trinity Parish in Easton, and dear Muslim friends from the Lehigh Dialogue Center.
Donna ended the Eucharists this weekend with a special blessing which she brought with her from the Diocese of Western Massachusetts.
The Blessing (Written by The Most Reverend Stewart Payne)
May the Lord Jesus, who loves with a wounded heart,
Be your love for evermore.
May the Lord Jesus, who serves with wounded hands,
Help you serve others.
May the Lord Jesus, who walks with wounded feet,
Walk you to the end of the road.
Look for the face of Jesus in everyone you meet.
And may everyone you meet see the face of Jesus in you.
And the blessing of God almighty, Father, Son and Holy Spirit
Be with you and remain with you always. Amen.
