Holy Trinity Old Strathcona bid a fond farewell to the Rev. Eileen Edwards with an outdoor pack-your-own-picnic lunch (complete with TYP TOP Bakery cupcakes), held Sunday, July 25. Rev. Eileen, who serves as associate priest at Holy Trinity, is preparing to move to Pennsylvania where she accepted the call to be pastor of Palmer Moravian Church!
As our children and families ministry coordinator for two years, Rev. Eileen introduced the children and adults alike to weekly Godly Play stories, as well as hilarious Lego Jesus videos in which sometimes Jesus was surfing on a cloud, sometimes disciples tipped the whole pile over and, during Pentecost, tongues of fire sent Lego heads flying!
We will miss Rev. Eileen’s smile, laughter, and personality, though we know she will do amazing things in her ministry at Palmer. Submitted by the Rev. Danielle Key, rector Holy Trinity Old Strathcona
