Mtg Rm Message from Father Matt: After extensive conversation with Carl Johnson, he has informed me of his decision to resign, effective at the end of this month. I am grateful to him for his generous acceptance of the challenge of inaugurating a new and much needed position here at Cathedral. Carl has begun training to become re-certified in the field of Emergency Medical Response after discerning that that is where he would like to spend his early retirement years. The search committee that worked 6 months ago to fill this new position had consensus that there was an advantage to bringing in an outside person to fill the role. While there is truth to the premise, I have decided that there is also real potential to promoting from within, and so I have asked Lynn Cartledge to be our new Parish Manager. Lynn has exhibited significant competence and dedication as Director of our Early Childhood Center, and I look forward to her bringing those qualities to bear more broadly in the Parish. May God bless Carl, Lynn, and our parish in this time of transition! O Come Let Us Adore Him!

In my Father’s house there are many dwelling places. If there were not, would I have told you that I am going to prepare a place for you?
