Farewell to Rev. June and Rick

Farewell to Rev. June and Rick

Sunday, November 1st we honored our own Rev. Dr. June Smith, our Assisting Priest, and a strong pillar in the parish, as she retires from the ASU and moves to Oregon to be near their daughters. June and her local celebrity husband, Rick, will be sorely missed. We are confident that the God who called them to Oregon is the same God who will sustain both them and us. We are blessed that June’s mother lives nearby and she will be back for visits. She will be most welcomed to celebrate with us if her visits allow.  Sunday was a day for praising the Lord, weeping because of our devotion to them, and having the strength in the Lord to send them forward in the name of our precious Lord and Savior Jesus Christ.
