Change in Transitions
The Rev. Canon Deborah Tammearu to Retire Dec 31; The Rev. Nora Smith to Be New Canon for Transition Ministry
Bishop Dietsche announced Sept 21 that Canon Deborah Tammearu would step down from her role as Canon for Transition Ministry at the end of 2018, and that the Rev. Nora Smith, currently serving on the Bishop's staff as director of Strategic Programs, will take her place.
"This is a poignant moment for both Deb and me," the Bishop wrote in his message to the diocese, "as she was the first person I invited onto my staff after becoming your bishop, and in the years since has helped shepherd the call of new clergy leadership for at least half the churches in the diocese."
