On Sunday we had reasons to celebrate:
- Welcoming our new sister in Christ – Lois presented by her proud parents and elder brother.
- The announcement of the appointment of our new Chaplain. Here is the message from Colin, our Archdeacon:
Good afternoon to you all,
I’m writing so as to share with you some excellent news, which is that it was announced on Sunday morning that a new chaplain has been appointed to Stuttgart .
She is the Rev’d Kara Werner, currently serving as Team Vicar in the Wirksworth Team Ministry in Derbyshire in the English East Midlands.
Kara comes to us with much energy, drive and vision. We are confident that she will build well on the goodly heritage which Ken Dimmick left to us, as well as bringing her own insights gained from wide experience in ministry, both in England and in Uganda.
Kara still has to find somewhere to live in Stuttgart. However we are planning that she will be licensed to her new responsibilities at a service at St. Catherine’s at or around noon on Saturday, April 21. Do please write that into your diary. It would be good to have as many Anglican clergy and laity as possible from around Germany with us that day as a sign of our support for Kara in her new ministry.
Please pray for Kara and for the people of Stuttgart, Ulm and Kempten.
With my Good Wishes and Prayers
We give thanks for all those who have been involved in the appointments process and those who are holding the fort during the interregnum.
Please pray for Kara as she embarks on the organisation of her move to Stuttgart.
- The gathering together of the people of St. Catherine’s to listen to the word of God proclaimed and celebrate Holy Communion together.
