Reverend Betty Announces Her Retirement From St. Mary's

Dear Friends,

One of the best known scripture passages comes from the book of Ecclesiastes. The passage begins  "To every thing there is a season, and a time to every purpose under the heaven." Nothing human or on earth lasts forever; if we fall into the trap of believing otherwise, then we risk missing what is being offered us.  

For over seven years, you and I have shared in mission, ministry and service in the life of St. Mary's. For me, it has been an extraordinary season. However, our season is coming to a close. I have informed the Wardens and the Vestry that I plan to retire as the 11th Rector of St. Mary's on Sunday, November 1, 2015. Jim and I will then be moving to Oregon to start the next season of our life; we are not clear what all that means, but we do look forward to it with excitement, expectation and hope. 

Yet November 1 is over five months away. Our season is not yet over. We have a lot of things to do, some things to get in order and all the while continuing the incredible life and ministry of St. Mary's. The next five plus months will be busy; I hope we will laugh a great deal, express our gratitude to God and one another and yes, even perhaps, shed a few tears along the way.  

I imagine that you may have questions about the next season of St. Mary's. Please be assured that St. Mary's has strong leadership in Senior Warden Frank Favia, Junior Warden Josh Bewlay and an incredibly committed Vestry. Guiding the search process for a new Rector will be consultants from the Diocese of New York, especially The Rev. Canon Deb Tammearu, Canon for Transitional Ministry. Deb has visited St. Mary's already and will worship with us and meet with the Vestry on Sunday, June 14. 

I want you to know how honored, privileged and blessed I am to have been called to serve here as your Rector. I will always be eternally grateful to God for this opportunity. As I once heard: "It hasn't been perfect, but it has been good." I would add to that these words "It has been very, very good."   

I close in the words of 13th century mystic Meister Eckhart: "If the only two words we ever say are 'Thank you' they would be enough."  

Thank  you, dear friends. It has been a blessed season.

Blessings,    

Betty+

St. Mary's Lecture Series Presents an Informed Discussion Regarding Lyme Disease - October 29 - 7pm

Please join us for an informed discussion regarding Lyme disease

Dr. Carolyn Britton, Associate Professor of Neurology at Columbia University, and Dr. Jim Dasbach, a clinical veterinarian with specialization in treating Lyme disease in animals, will be speaking at St. Mary’s In Tuxedo Church (at the entrance to Tuxedo Park) on Friday, October 29, 2010 at 7 p.m.

Both speakers will discuss Lyme disease, its causes and effects.  Their lectures will be followed by a buffet dinner in Bentley Hall at the Church.  During the dessert portion of dinner, there will be a question and answer period. 

This is an excellent opportunity to learn about Lyme disease and its impact on our community.  Please join us!  RSVP required for dinner.  Please call Lisa Favia at St. Mary’s at 845.351.5122

Biographies of the speakers:

Carolyn B. Britton, MD, Clinical Professor of Neurology at Columbia University, is the chief neurologist for our Lyme research studies.  With specific expertise in neurovirology, Dr. Britton has a particular interest in the clinical care and research of patients with Lyme Disease, Multiple Sclerlosis, and HIV. In 2008, Dr. Britton was elected President of the National Medical Association.

Jim Dasbach.  After graduating from The Ohio State University College of Veterinary Medicine in 1982, Dr. Dasbach has enjoyed clinical veterinary practice in Florida, Massachusetts and New York.  Dr. Dasbach has treated thousands of cases of tick borne diseases over the years, with the greatest concentration seen during his 12.5 years of practice on Nantucket, MA. His clinical experience is predominantly with dogs and cats, although he has also treated tick related diseases in horses, sheep and pigs.

Practicing in New York City since 2004, he continues to diagnose many cases of canine tick borne diseases due in large part to the traveling lifestyles of his client and their pets. Doing both general medicine and surgery, Dr. Dasbach spends much of his clinical time working on allergies in addition to tick borne diseases.  Dr. Dasbach is currently working at the Greenwich Village Animal Hospital in Manhattan, as well as doing a limited housecall practice on the Upper East Side.
