These three new acolytes represent a very big change at our church. For decades, the acolytes were men, men who had been acolytes since they were very young, back before the churches of Saint Andrew’s and Saint Matthew’s consolidated into the church we now call the Episcopal Church of Saints Andrew and Matthew. Those gentlemen called themselves “The Old Geezers”. One, Al Brock, is still serving. Les Roberts recently retired. Others have died.
We pray these these girls will continue to serve God for many decades to come, and are confident they will bring light into the world all of their lives.
