Choir: There will be a mass choir at the installation which will gather for rehearsals before the day of the installation. If you are interested in participating in the mass choir, please send an email to Ms. Tracey Beasley at firstname.lastname@example.org. The music directors will be in contact with rehearsal locations and times. On the day of the installation, choir is asked to arrive at noon.
Volunteers Needed: Volunteers are needed to help celebrate the installation of Bishop Patricia Davenport on Saturday, September 22. We are in need of ushers, greeters, Communion servers, on-call medical personnel, and leaders for processional groups. If you are able to volunteer, please fill out this form no later than September 4. Depending on the volunteer role, you will be asked to arrive as early as noon on the day of the installation. The worship team will contact volunteers with assigned roles and more information via email after September 4.
