Rev. Shelby Owen becomes Rector
In a special worship service held on Wednesday, September 2, Rev. Shelby Owen was officially recognized and welcomed as the Rector of Emmanuel Episcopal Church. For the preceding two years since coming to Emmanuel, Shelby has served as "Priest In Charge," and her new office confirms her long-term status with our parish. The Bishop of the Diocese of Southwestern Virginia, the Rt. Rev. Mark Bourlakas, presided over the service, "The Renewal of Ministry with the Welcoming of a New Rector," also known as a "Celebration of New Ministry." Rev. Paul Nancarrow from Trinity Episcopal Church also participated in the ceremony. A reception with food prepared by Emmanuel members followed the service.
