Angell Departs for Parish Ministry; Kelly to Serve as Acting Missioner

It is with true mixed emotions that we share with you that Mike Angell has accepted a call as rector at The Episcopal Church of the Holy Communion in St. Louis, Missouri. As Young Adult and Campus Ministries Missioner, Mike has revitalized the ministry in those areas, and we – the Church and the staff – will benefit from his efforts for a long time. Mike embraced a leadership position in many areas, especially during the response of the church to the situation in Ferguson, MO.  Through his time here, he was steadfast in his dedication to the needs of others.

While we are sad that he is leaving, we are joyful that he has been called to parish ministry.  He will be serving a church in St Louis, MO, his hometown.  Our joy is in the knowledge that Mike’s leadership, forward thinking and spirit-filled actions will be focused on the local level, the grass-roots area of our church where mission and ministry is thriving.

Mike will be leaving the staff on March 13th.  I hope you will join us in thanking Mike for his time here with us, and offer him prayer and support for his next adventure in mission.  Please read the note from Mike about his transition, click here.

Shannon Kelly, known to many of us as she served as the Acting Missioner for Lifelong Christian Formation until Ruth-Ann Collins returned this January, will remain on staff and  will oversee Young Adult and Campus Ministry.  In addition, Shannon will continue to coordinate some formation projects, events, and curriculum development.  Shannon and Ruth-Ann will continue to serve on the Congregational Development and Formation Team in the Mission Department.
