The Rev’d Charlie Cox ended the second Sunday in Advent service at St. Alban’s in Grand Bank with presentations to two members of the congregation.
Elvina Brushett, a long-time member of St. Alban’s, received her license to serve as a Eucharistic Minister in the Diocese of Central Newfoundland. Ben Wiseman, a warden, and the rector, the Rev’d Charlie Cox, made the presentation. Elvina had been referred earlier by St. Alban’s vestry, and was then approved by the Rt. Rev’d John Watton, Bishop of Central Newfoundland.
Elvina received a warm welcome from the congregation.
Attention then moved from the newest Eucharist Minister to one that has served in that capacity for many years. Warden Wiseman presented Hazel Caines with a certificate of appreciation for a lifetime of devoted service and faith as a Eucharist Minister at St. Alban’s, which she has done for thirty years.
Members of the congregation expressed their appreciation to Hazel for her devotion to her church family.
