Dear Parishioners of St. Mark’s,
It is with mixed emotions that I announce to you a change of staff: The Rev. Amber Carswell has accepted a position as an assistant priest at Trinity Cathedral in Little Rock. Amber will be staying with us through Easter, and her final Sunday at St. Mark’s will be April 3.
Amber has contributed a great deal to this church as our full-time curate. She began our 20s and 30s group, and helped restart our ASU college ministry. Her preaching and pastoral presence has also contributed to the growth at St. Mark’s, and we will miss seeing her on a regular basis at the altar and in the pulpit. While sad at her departure, we wish her well in her new position.
The vestry and I, in conjunction with the Bishop, are exploring our future options for next summer. We will keep you updated as the information is available.
Yours in Christ,
The Reverend Jesse Perkins, Rector
