A Message from The Rector
Staff News: Parish Administrator 

Wednesday, April 28, 2021 

Dear Grace-St. Luke’s Parish and School Community: 

I write to share the news that Linda Stine, Parish Administrator, has notified me that she will retire from the Staff effective Tuesday, June 29, 2021. Almost 33 years ago, on June 29, 1988, Linda joined the GSL clergy-staff team in the position of Bookkeeper followed by years of staff needs assessment and development resulting in her current role as Parish Administrator. 

Faithfully, wisely, and with a spirit of generosity, compassion, and humor, Linda lovingly has served and supported our community, and will be sorely missed. It has been a personal honor and privilege to serve with Linda since I arrived in July 2018. In the coming months, Linda plans to sell her house in order to relocate to Austin, Texas to be near her son and other family. 

As the GSL community prepares for this transition together, I ask your prayers for Linda. As well, I ask your prayers as I recruit a new member for the clergy-staff team to serve in the role of Director of Operations and Finance with assistance from my advisory Personnel Committee.

Stay tuned for information about ways to join my colleagues and me in celebrating and honoring Linda's extraordinary ministry among us.

In thanksgiving for the faith that binds us, 


The Reverend Ollie V. Rencher, Rector
