The Rev. Susan Leight graduated from The Virginia Theological Seminary with a Master of Divinity Degree at its Bicentennial Commencement Service on Thursday, May 12th. Bishop San represented the diocese at the commencement ceremony. We are all so proud of Susie because her studies began in 2019 – pre-Covid 19 and she was able to persevere and pursue her studies despite living into the mandatory restrictions as a result of the Covid-19 Pandemic virus. Her ordination to the priesthood is scheduled for later this year. Congratulations Susie!! (please check below for a note to Wye Parish from Susie)

I have just been notified that the last few clients at the shelter have been transitioned out to other permanent housing. On behalf of our guest and the staff I would like to thank everyone for their assistance throughout the winter months. Your meals were greatly appreciated. If we should accept any other guest into the shelter before the end of the month, I let everyone know.
Many thanks for all the help.
