The Rev. Canon C. John Thompson-Quartey, Canon for Ministry Development & Congregational Vitality, and the Rev. Mandy Brady (St. Francis –Macon) asked the MEG Chapter of the Vergers’ Guild to assist with the logistics and to serve at the Holy Week Renewal of Ordination Vows led by Bishop Wright. The service was held March 31 at The Temple, a Reform synagogue in Midtown Atlanta. Rabbi Peter S. Berg preached the sermon and the Clark Atlanta University Choir performed.
Vergers participating in the service were Lorie Tola, Chair MEG Chapter (St. Patrick’s – Dunwoody), David Neville (St. Simon’s – Conyers), Phillip Knight (St. Teresa's – Acworth), Ken Singleton (St. Paul’s – Atlanta) and Chuck Dale (St. Augustine’s – Morrow).
After the service Canon Thompson-Quartey wrote; “You and your team were PHENOMENAL!!!!! Wow! I doubt the celebration would have gone as smoothly as it did without the presence of the Vergers. Thank you (to all the vergers) for your dedication and commitment to serving in this capacity. I look forward to serving with you in other diocesan events!”
