The Rev. Posey Krakowsky, our new Priest Associate, will begin her ministry at Ascension this week. She will be the regular presider and preacher at our Wednesday evening 6 pm service starting September 13, and she will preach this Sunday, September 17 at both the 9 and 11 am services. She will also lead a forum following the 11 am service this Sunday introducing herself to us and sharing something of her spiritual journey. Please join us to welcome her and hear her message! Mother Posey will be at Ascension for a weekday service each week, and will either preach or celebrate at least once a month at Sunday services. She will also lead classes and other programs from time to time as she develops a special teaching ministry in spirituality and the arts. We are delighted to have her among us!
Welcome to our seminarian, Allison Burns! Allison is a middler at the General Theological Seminary, and will be doing her field placement at Ascension this year. She is sponsored for ordination by the Diocese of New Jersey, where she is a parishioner at Trinity Church, Cranford. She brings a wealth of parish experience in both pastoral ministry and administration, and serves as a co-chief sacristan at GTS. Here, she will be serving in a variety of roles in the liturgy, offering an adult education program, preaching occasionally, and exploring other dimensions of ministry as they arise. We look forward to having Allison at Ascension!
