An announcement from Kelley

An announcement from Kelley

The year 2020 has been one of a lot of changes. We have had to learn how to do many things in new ways. We said goodbye to Thomas as he began his new ministry in Auburn. I was ordained a priest. Through all these changes, the community of Trinity Commons has continued to welcome students and grow in faith.

My time with Trinity Commons will conclude on December 31, 2020. I came to Trinity Commons in August 2018 to serve as the deacon. With your support and prayers, I discerned a call to the priesthood. I have enjoyed my time spent in worship on campus and at the student center. I have enjoyed cooking, sharing meals, and all the conversations. I will always be grateful for my time in this community.

Bishop Glenda has appointed the Rev. Emily Collette to serve at Trinity Commons beginning January 2021. Emily is likely a familiar face to some of you. When she was a student at UAB, she was very active at Trinity Commons and was a resident. She joined the Advisory Board in Fall 2020 and has joined us for worship recently. I know that the ministry of Trinity Commons is in good hands, and am excited to see how this vital ministry will continue and take shape in 2021.

I will continue my work with the diocese as the communications coordinator. Thank you for your support in my time at Trinity Commons. You will continue to be in my prayers.

With love,
