Friends and colleagues of Grace Presbytery,

We are excited, anxious, and poised for our staff-council pilgrimage to the isle of Iona, Scotland, commonly considered the birthplace of Celtic Christianity. We have studied, fellowshipped, and prepared for many weeks.

Our journey begins May 24th and continues through early June; to this end, the presbytery office at the Presbyterian Mission Center in Irving will be closed Tuesday, May 24th through Friday, June 3rd.

Staff members on the pilgrimage will check email once per day, so as to facilitate any pressing pastoral concerns or address emergency needs. For all other matters, please let us hear from you beginning Monday, June 6th, as we will return with many adventures and stories to share!

Thank you for keeping our council members, staff, and their families in your prayers as we embark on this incredible pilgrimage. We are grateful for and humbled by the opportunity, and we look forward to returning inspired and ignited to continue the good work of the Church and Grace Presbytery.

Living into a New Way of Being and Doing,
Your presbytery staff and council
