The annual meeting of Albany Via Media met on Saturday, November 9 at St. Paul’s Church, Albany.
The following officers for 2013-14 were elected by acclamation:
President: Claire “Toby” Touby
Vice President: Jeremy Feedore
Treasurer: John White
Secretary: Keith St. John
Members of the board present at the meeting decided to enter a period of prayerful consideration of how the organization might best continue to meet the spiritual needs of Episcopalians in the Diocese of Albany in the future. The next open meeting of the board was tentatively scheduled for Saturday, March 8, 2014, again at St. Paul’s, Albany. In the intervening time your board will be in communication as we contemplate the challenges and opportunities ahead.
In the meantime, AVM will continue to update the AVM Facebook page, post on the blog Openly Episcopal in Albany, and here at our website. We welcome input and comments from members of the Diocese of Albany and our friends throughout the Episcopal Church. Membership in Albany Via Media includes every parishioner in the Diocese of Albany. This is your organization, and we welcome your suggestions for ways to connect with the wider Church.
As our Mission Statement says: “In light of the inclusive vision of the Gospel, we champion the mission and ministry of The Episcopal Church to the people of the Diocese of Albany. Blessing our differences, and surrounded by prayer, scripture and worship, we offer community building, fellowship and spiritual programs.”
Together, let all of us join the discussion of issues important to us as Episcopal Christians.
