Bishop George Wayne Smith Visits St. Martin’s

Sunday, March 17, 9:00 a.m.

We look forward to welcoming the Tenth Bishop of the Episcopal Diocese of Missouri, the Rt. Rev. George Wayne Smith, to our worship for his final visitation as our bishop, having announced his desire to retire in April 2020 after serving this diocese since June 2002.

Bishop Smith will be our celebrant at the Rite of Confirmation and Reception, welcoming eleven new Episcopalians, assisted by Rev. Leslie Scoopmire and Rev. Sally Weaver.

Immediately following this service, please join us in Park Hall to enjoy brunch and cake with the bishop. He will discuss the search and transition process for the Eleventh Bishop of Missouri and the current state of the Episcopal Church, as well as taking questions.

** Please note: there will NOT be a Saturday evening service this weekend.
