Director of Music Barbara Ellis’s retirement celebration is set for May 31 after the 10a liturgy.
Barbara Ellis has been our Director of Music for 20 years – she came to St. Matthew’s in 1995, when The Rev. Dick Humke was Rector.
“My greatest pleasure has been making music with the wonderful members of the choir and handbell choirs, says Barbara. “They are a remarkable group – they give their best week after week, come early, rehearse each week, and have a tremendous commitment to the ministry of our parish.” Barbara has directed the choir for more than 1,000 services — “more than 3,000 hymns,” she adds.
Join us in the narthex this coming Sunday at 11a to celebrate Barbara’s 20 years of service to the parish and her commitment to building and directing the music ministry.
