Updates

Fr. Stephen went to his first meeting of Diocesan Council and has some info to share:

  • Our Bishop-elect and her husband have found and purchased a home in Helena! Her last service in North Carolina will be in mid-October and they will then move out west! Her first day as our bishop-elect will be November 1, 2019, which will mark exactly one year since Bishop Brookhart’s retirement.
  • Forsyth was approved for a Faber Fund Grant, which is named in honor of Bishop Faber, the third bishop of Montana. The grant for Church of the Ascension will help fund replacement of the siding on the back side of the building which is original to the building (~52 years) and deteriorating from weathering. Pictures are below.
