Pat & Annemarie Carrigan were among the 54 members of the Incarnation High School Mission trip that returned from Guatemala this afternoon. Having raised the money in advance, the group constructed 5 houses and 11 stoves in a remote rural village. Thanks to Pam Coghlan, Carl Hammack, and all the leaders and donors who made the trip possible.
I had the pleasure of calling on parishioner Pamela Nelson in her studio today. Pamela is currently Artist-in-Residence at the Fairmont Hotel. There is a nice article about Pamela here.
It was good to spend a couple of days in Lunenburg County, Nova Scotia, with friends before preaching at the Atlantic Theological Conference in Halifax last month.
I had the honor of preaching at the Nashotah House Convocation on May 22nd. These two buildings, preserved on the campus of Nashotah House, bear witness to the humble beginnings of this theological college, and the pioneering spirit of early American Anglo-Catholicism. They were built to house a missionary monastic community in the Wisconsin Territory which soon became a training center for the priesthood. The Blue House was constructed in 1842 as the community’s home. The Red Chapel was built the following year.
