“Walk” of Ages. When Bishop Ely visited Christ Church, Island Pond, VT, on September 23 he had the pleasure of walking up their new front stairs completed with funds from Diocesan Grants & Loans this past summer. Prior to the repair, access was prevented with yellow caution tape, causing passersby to think the church was closed. Pictured here, congregants welcome all…through the front door!

Veronika Travis, who was as a ordained transitional deacon at Trinity, Shelburne, VT, in 2017, celebrated her ordination to the priesthood on September 26 at St. Luke’s, Alexandria, VA, with Bishop Ely officiating, her wife Molly attending, and the Rev.
