Reflections on the 10th Anniversary of New Life

Our 10th Anniversary/Building Rededication Ceremony was held on January 6, 2013. This special afternoon service was presided over by the Rt. Rev. Mark Hollingsworth, Bishop of Ohio, and featured our current rector, the Rev. Patricia Hanen, and our founding rector, the Rev. Stephanie Pace.  People from across the diocese joined us as we rededicated the building from the front door to the kitchen to the parlor, and finally into our "new" sanctuary.  The service was a reflection on the trials and challenges that were faced by the people of St. Peter's and St. Michael and All Angels, as two congregations ventured into uncharted territory to be reborn as one, new, church.

During the celebration, we heard reflections from Jan Szwast and the Rev. Stephanie Pace, in addition to the sermon delivered the the Rev. Patricia Hanen.  If you missed the service, you may listen to these reflections here.
