Mark Emory Graham Chapter

Vergers of the Diocese, Unite!

Charles Dale

The 111th Diocesan Council is 3 months away, but preparations are already under way to ensure that this event proceeds “safely, orderly, and with proper decorum!”  The MEG Chapter will again provide Vergers to serve at the Eucharist and as Tellers to the Council. 

Diocesan Council is at the First Baptist Church in Gainesville this year, November 10-11, 2017.  We need about a dozen volunteers to serve from about 8:00 am until around 4:00 pm on Friday (November 10th), and from 9:00 am until noon on Saturday (November 11th).  Many of you have served in previous years, and are seasoned professionals.  Others may be interested in serving for the first time—do not fear, we’ll show you the ropes quickly enough. 

This is an important, visible service of our Chapter to the Diocese, and fosters a tremendous sense of fellowship among the volunteers.  Please volunteer by e-mailing Karl Sachsenmaier ( )  Full details and instructions will follow, about 2 weeks before the event.  Please respond as soon as you can commit—this is a fun event to serve at, and we will accept volunteers on a first come basis.
