Welcome to our new Head Verger!
At Evensong on Sunday, the Rev. Canon Brooks Mason passed his ceremonial virge to Lisa Churchill, who will assume the duties of Head Verger. Brooks remains Canon Verger, and will continue to perform much of the liturgical role associated with this position. But because Brooks is now ordained clergy, he can no longer act as Verger at services, so Lisa will assume those duties.
Welcome, Lisa, to this new ministry. And, for those who want to learn more about vergers, or altar service in general--check out this ministry spotlight and this field guide to the processional.
here's the slideshow from the service....and if the embedded version doesn't work, here's a link to the slideshow, and a link to the pictures.
