January 2015

Welcome to the Pohick Post Online!

A Happy New Year to one and all!

It has been a great holiday season this year, and many thanks to all who made Advent and Christmas so special, with the music, the worship, the pageantry, and the beautiful decorations being wonderful inspirations to us all!

The "twelve days of Christmas" continue up to Epiphany on January 6th. During this time, we'll be formally welcoming our many new families to the congregation on Sunday, January 4th after the 9 am service. The following Sunday, January 11th, we'll commemorate the Baptism of Christ with several baptisms. That day will also be our annual parish meeting, which will be held in the Common Room at 10:30 am. We'll be electing four new vestry members and a youth representative out of a slate of nine candidates. Read our Sr. Warden's column to learn more.

We'll also be hearing several reports from the clergy and vestry officers about the advances of the previous year, as well as the challenges ahead of us in 2015. Read the Rector's and Assistant's Reports for an advance look at some of the major themes to be addressed.

At the end of 2014, we had a wonderful send-off for Vonne Troknya, who retired after 23 years of faithful service as our Parish Secretary. See our FaceBook page for some pictures from that day. We begin the New Year by welcoming Susan Hayward-Costa into that position. When you next see her, please offer some words of congratulations and encouragement.
