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.
