Rector's Message

Rev. Beth FrankThe Rev. Beth Frank is a recent graduate of Bexley Hall Seminary in Columbus, Ohio.  She was ordained a (transitional) deacon in June, 2013, and was ordained to the sacred order of priests on December 6, 2013 - St. Nicholas Day.  She was appointed by the bishop to serve New Life as Priest-in-Charge, and served here until June 2016.

Beth has accepted a call to continue her ministry at St. Andrew's Episcopal Church in Toledo. We will continue the archive of her messages and reflections as we being this period of transition.

Thank you so much for the wonderful send off to my new ministry at St. Andrew's-Toledo. You have been wonderful companions on my journey to and through ordination to the priesthood and beyond. You will remain in my heart and prayers, especially on St. Nicholas Day.

My sidekick Leo is not sure he's ready for a new call. You have been instrumental in the Leo's formation as greeter extraordinaire and pastoral visitor. As we know, he's still still learning the ropes of Episcopal worship, especially when to make a joyful noise.

Leo and I would like to extend to you once more the charge which I gave to all of us last Sunday:

Be fair and just in everything you do.
Forgive those who do you wrong.
Be merciful and kind,
especially to those who are weaker than you.
Be guided by the cross of Jesus Christ,
who is your judge and your salvation.

Blessings and prayers for the journey,
Beth and Leo
