Trinity Episcopal Church 91 Main Street, Bridgewater, MA
You are invited......
It has come to our attention that this past week is John Conn’s 50th anniversary of his ordination to the priesthood! In the words of Bishop Alan Gates, “It's a remarkable milestone and there are not very many priests still active and serving faithfully as he is when they reach that anniversary.” I am sure everyone would agree that reaching this milestone is an amazing accomplishment. With the current situation, we will hold off on formally honoring John as a group, but we are planning on honoring John virtually this coming Sunday and by organizing a “flash” car parade in the parking lot of Trinity. For those that wish to participate, the details are as follows:
· Gather in the parking lot of Trinity this coming Sunday, May 31 and remain in your
· At around 10:00 (the service is at 9:00), either Jerry, or Deacon Kris will wave.
· Everyone starts honking your horns as you drive away.
Feel free to decorate your car or make a sign for it - with your family's name or a congratulatory message.
Gather in the parking lot of Trinity by 9:50 am this coming Sunday, May 31st, and
remain in your cars.
At around 10:00 am (the service is at 9:00 am), either Jerry or Deacon Kris will wave
and "we'll start our engines".
We'll parade up the driveway and take a "congratulatory" lap or two around the
church, honking our horns and waving, while John and the others who participated
in the service stand outside the various church doors at an appropriate social
distance to watch John's parade go by.
We'll head home with happy smiles on our faces.
It is a short timeframe to organize this, but I think we can easily get this together in the next couple of days. We will try to Facebook live the event for all to share.
If you do come, please remember social distancing guidelines, and remain in your car. We will celebrate in person together at a future date.
