Dear St. Patrick's family,
I pray this message finds you doing well and you and yours are safe and secure at this time. Let me begin by offering our sincerest thank you to all of you. The love and support we have experienced in the past two weeks has been a wonderful example of God's grace and love for me and our family as we have dealt with the reality of this virus. At this point, everyone in our house has tested positive for the virus. Although we each have experienced symptoms due to this infection, thankfully we appear to be on the mend at this time. Our symptoms, ranged from low grade fever, and slight body aches to severe headache, body aches, and sinus pressure with very high fevers. As I have said before, this virus is not to be trifled with.
Your support during these past two weeks has absolutely made this experience more bearable. For that I would like to offer each of you my deepest and most sincere thank you.
I would also like to update you regarding our Annual Meeting details. As is our custom, we typically have our annual meeting the last Sunday of January each year. Due to the virus, this year we are not able to meet in-person, so we were going to send you an Annual Meeting email on January 31st. Since, I have been sick, I have been unable to prepare and coordinate all of the information required for our virtual Annual Meeting email. Therefore, we WILL NOT BE SENDING, the Annual meeting email this Sunday, January 31st. Instead, since I will be back in the office on Monday, February 1st, we will send the Annual meeting materials on Sunday, February 7th. I apologize for any confusion or inconvenience. As always, if you have any questions or concerns please feel free to contact me or any of your vestry members.
Thank you again for your support and prayers these past few days. We are truly grateful. I look forward to seeing you soon.
Yours in Christ,
Dear Brothers and Sisters,
I am writing to let you know I tested positive for COVID-19 yesterday, January 20th. My first symptoms appeared in the evening, on Tuesday, January 19th. The family and I will be in quarantine for the next two weeks. I am feeling okay at this time, with only slight symptoms. However, as we have learned in the past year, this virus is not to be taken lightly. With that in mind, I ask that you keep my family and I in your prayers within the coming days.
In my absence, Fr. Jerry Phillips, from St. Augustine's will be supplying for me.
Thank you in advance for your prayers and support. I look forward to seeing you again as soon as I'm COVID-19 free.
