It is with great sadness that Christ Episcopal Church will say goodbye to Reverend Mary Catherine Akamatsu effective August 31, 2014. She has been such a positive influence in our parish for the last year as interim rector. She and her husband Jeff will be greatly missed. Jeff has been an important part of their ministry and so involved with our services. We wish them all the best on their next endeavors.
The glad news is that Reverend Ben Alford has agreed to be our next interim rector! He is an Albertville native and is very familiar with our parish and our goals and ministries. He will take over on September 1, 2014 and his first Sunday service will be September 7, 2014. We are excited about the next chapter in our journey and are very happy about Rev Ben’s being with us.
