From the Rector's Desk: Tony Kittrell Announcement
Dear St. Columbans,
With deep gratitude and a hint of selfish sadness I write to say that Tony Kittrell, our Director of Operations has accepted another position and is leaving St. Columba’s. One need only take a short stroll through the building or around the grounds to see the incredible impact that Tony has had around here. The Nave is fully restored to its former glory even as it is wired and prepped for the future. The Columbarium is beautifully updated and expanded to accommodate even more faithful departed than before. The front lawn is ready to undergo an incredible transformation - essentially doubling our worship and gathering space at the corner of Albemarle and 42nd and Tony has been at the helm of all these projects and more!! Without a doubt, Tony has left this place “better than he found it.”
And that’s just talking about the physical stuff he’s accomplished! We haven’t even gotten to Tony’s incredible kindness, thoughtfulness and generosity of spirit and grace. St. Columba’s is a better place because Tony was here, and we are forever grateful for his time with us.
Tony’s last official day in the office is May 13th but he will be finishing a few more projects throughout the rest of the month till he’s gone, gone. In the meantime, Greg Parker and John Nolan are spearheading the search for our next Operations Manager and are posting the job this week.
Blessings Tony! We wish you God’s peace and joy in your next endeavor.
The Rev. Amy Molina-Moore
Dear St. C’s Family,
As you may or may not know, my time at St C’s is coming to an end. It’s been a great pleasure working with each of you, and the thought of leaving is very bittersweet. As much as I’m excited about where my next steps take me, I will genuinely miss working with and for each of you.
Thank you for your continuous support, and please do keep in touch. Feel free to email me at [email protected].
I know you will continue doing great things in this parish and in life, and I’m excited about what the future brings. Thank you for making me feel at home over the last three and half years.
