Welcome to the Rev. Ron DelBene
Dear Saint Stephen’s,
I want to share that the Rev. Ron DelBene has accepted my invitation to affiliate with Saint Stephen’s. As a retired clergy member, Ron has wisdom and experience to share with many communities and as a Priest Associate, you will see Ron here on Wednesday evenings building relationships and being a presence in our community. He will also preach and celebrate occasionally as his schedule permits and our needs arise. I am also excited that Ron desires to join our staff programming meetings on Thursdays and to be a part of our creative brainstorming and mission development conversations.
I first worked with Ron on staff of Church of the Holy Communion in 2005 in Memphis, Tennessee. Our paths have crossed several times since, and I have always admired his passion and creativity, and am delighted that those gifts will be shared more intentionally here at Saint Stephen’s.
Please join me in welcoming Ron formally to our community.
The Rev. John B. Burruss
