Thank You From Rev. Kelly
I want to thank the parish for the generous gifts and wonderful send-off on February 1st. It was a joy to see so
many from St. Thomas' and Lake of Bays together, and to celebrate the ministry we have shared while I was your
Incumbent. I am beyond grateful. Thank you also to the Messy Church team and all the children for the photo
album! May you continue to shine like stars. Please be assured of my continued prayers for all of you as you
search for a new Incumbent and as you carry on the ministries God has entrusted to you.
