The St. Francis Community was out in full force this morning as we sadly bade farewell to Deacon Edrice Veichweg, who has blessed our lives with her ministry since September, 2011. The many tributes and thanks expressed today highlighted her wonderful sermons, her introduction of the Prayer Shawl Ministry to St. Francis Parish, and her commitment to social justice, only one example of which is her work in her home country of St. Kitts & Nevis. Her sense of humor, and the deep personal friendships she has shared with us will be treasured always.
While we are profoundly sad to see her go, we are extremely grateful for the many gifts that she has given us.
We wished Edrice all the best in her new assignment at St. Paul’s Church, Fairfield, and reminded her that she will always be a treasured member of the St. Francis family.
