Is this you?

We will be looking to develop a small leadership team from the congregation within the first year of our founding.  Its purpose will be to pray and to help guide the church's development until it becomes, God willing, an independent chaplaincy.

If you have gifts in this area that you believe God is calling you to share, please speak to the priest.
