Great visit to St Michael’s, O’Fallon. Baptized one and confirmed a bunch (about 8, I think). 105 souls in the room. Under Fr Wetmore’s leadership of about one year, the median age has decreased dramatically and giving is up. May their tribe increase.
After wrapping things up at St Michael’s, we headed east on I-64 for Mt Vernon, where I had a brief but highly productive meeting with their vestry. We needed to talk about transition issues arising from Fr Tucker’s intended departure for points east.
