Archbishop Duncan, Primate of the Anglican Church in North America, is coming to the Bay Area March 11 – 13.  There are two public events everyone is invited to.  they are:

Lay Leader Reception with Archbishop Duncan, Saturday March 12th, 3pm – 5pm
This reception will be held at the Claeys Lounge, Soda Center @ Saint Mary’s College in Moraga.  Clergy are welcome at this event, but it is specifically geared toward’s laity who would like an opportunity to meet and chat with Archbishop Duncan.  The Soda Center is near the entrance to the campus at 1928 St. Mary’s Rd., Moraga.  However, I’ve never been there.  I recommend you allow some time to enjoy a stroll on campus.

Ordination of Cindy Stansbury and Victor Schreffler on Sunday March 13th, 10am.
Archbishop Duncan will preside, preach, confirm and ordain at St. James Anglican Church in Saratoga.  Two members of St. John’s in Orinda will be confirmed.  A member of Amazing Grace in Roseville will be received.  Cindy and Victor will be ordained.

Cindy is a founding member of St. James who completed a Master of Arts in Ministry Degree at Nashotah House in preparation for ordination.  Victor served as a Pastor in the Church of the Nazarene for 29 years prior discerning a call to launch an Anglican Church in the Bay Area.  Victor will be planting a new church in either Berkeley or Walnut Creek…or both.

A pot luck finger food reception will be held following the service.

Please note that St. James moved this week and now worships at the Joan Pisani Community Center in Saratoga.
