Mite box offering for San Juan
Gift for Iglesia San Juan
Canon Ron McCrary and a group of adults and children from
St. Andrew’s, Fort Worth, presented a check to Fr. Javier Loyo
and the people of Iglesia San Juan Apostol for improvements
to their property. The gift came from St. Andrew’s annual
Mite Box offering, which totaled an all-time high $16,711
this year. The visit, on Saturday, April 7, was combined
with a luncheon and indoor Easter egg hunt, since
the weather was unseasonably cold and damp. San Juan
is currently without a parish house, so the funds will help
improve accommodations for the Sunday School program.

He is assisted by our Dean Emeritus, Fr. William Crary

A Clergy Day on marriage was held April 12 at the Church

Noll. He taught for many years at Trinity School for Ministry
and Uganda Christian University. Dr. Noll led 48 priests and
deacons in a study of the biblical teaching on Holy Matrimony
and the key ingredients in the preparation of couples planning

in the development of the new marriage rite for the Anglican
Church in North America.
