An evening to say thanks
On Tuesday evening of this week (June 30th) there was a gathering of the priests of the Diocese of Greensburg as well as our deacons and their wives to say thank you to our retiring bishop, Lawrence E. Brandt. The evening took place at the Bishop Connare Center in Greensburg, and began with Evening Prayer led by the bishop, followed by refreshments and dinner. It was an informal and relaxing evening, allowing those in attendance to express their gratitude to Bishop Brandt for his eleven years of service as our Shepherd. Bishop Brandt spoke at the dinner of the various programs and experiences of these past eleven years, and of his gratitude to the laity and priests and deacons for their prayers, collaboration and support. In this period of transition as a diocese, as we await the ordination of our new bishop, Edward C. Malesic on July 13th, we ask for your continued thoughts and prayers, and ask for a prayer for Bishop Brandt as he begins his retirement.
