We are very happy to announce formally our new Rector, Father Jonathan Hanneman. Father Jonathan's expected start date is October 1. He and his wife are in the process of working through the logistics of moving to the area. Here is his letter to our congregation as well as a short biography he put together. We give hearty thanks to the Search Committee, the Vestry, and Mother Jan for all their hard work in this process. We all look forward to Father Jonathan starting his work here at St. Andrew's, and we will have more information on events to welcome him in the coming days.
