St. Peter’s Gallipolis – Time to Say Goodbye!

By Cathy Bagot, Trinity Newark

I joined the people of St. Peter’s, Gallipolis, for Fr. A.J. Stack’s last Sunday with them. (Fr. A.J. has been called to a new parish in eastern New York.) Even though it was a very sad day for the parish, they couldn’t have been warmer in their welcome of us. The “Leave-taking Liturgy” was heartfelt and well done. The potluck following the service was wonderful! Fr. A.J. has been a faithful witness and pastor. He has made a difference in the parish and in the community. God speed, A.J. The people of St. Peter’s are well prepared to continue their ministries.

Bible Study at All Saints, New Albany

By Cathy Bagot, Trinity, Newark

I often join the Wednesday morning Bible study at All Saints, New Albany. A study of the Revelation, led by Fr. Jason Prati and Fr. Rob Rhodes, began in the fall … and, at the rate we are moving, may take 2 years to complete! Participants vary from week to week depending on individual schedules, but they have been very kind to allow an “outsider” to join them. The presentations are always thoughtful and informative, and generate lots of conversation among the participants. History, geography, and Bible cross-references are integral parts of the study. I come away each week feeling I have learned something from the excellent teachers and the other participants.
