Naples Deanery Clergy Family Beach Picnic
Sunday, August 24th, more than 25 members of the Clergy and their families of the Naples Deanery gathered at the Delnor Wiggins State Park and Beach for a Picnic and Beach Party. Clergy families from each and every congregation in Naples and Marco Island were represented as well as the Durnings from the Diocese. They welcomed new people and Bid a fond farewell to others.
The group welcomed new members such as The Rev. Jean Hite, who just began at St. Mary’s Church in Bonita Springs as an Assistant and Dr. Richard Gonzalez and his wife Esther who is the new Postulant for Holy Orders who is helping at St. John’s Church and The Rev. Bill Faupel and his wife Bonnie who are helping at St. Paul’s Church.
As Naples Deanery was getting new people, they also lost some to the Tampa Deanery. The Rev. Roy Allison and his wife Marcia and daughter Heather were moving to St. Mark’s Church as the new Rector Family. The Rev. Alice Sadler was moving to be the new Assistant at St. John’s Church and School in Hyde Park.
The group shared stories, played games, brought non perishable food items for St. Matthew’s House, and ate hamburgers and hot dogs. At the end everyone watched as Marcia fulfilled the Ice Bucket Challenge for ALS with Fr. Kyle Bennett’s help in pouring (ever slowly) the ice water on her head as Fr. Roy recorded the entire agonizing process. Fun was had by all – just look at the pictures.
