Installation of Msgr Keeney as Pastor – Saturday, September 21, 5:30 Mass

At the Saturday, 5:30 p.m. Mass on September 21 Bishop Barry Knestout will install Msgr. Keeney as the fifth pastor of the Church of the Incarnation. Installation is the name used for the ceremony in which a parish priest takes possession of the parish to which he has been appointed. The pastor is entrusted by the bishop with the spiritual care of the people of the parish, and is called to be the teacher of God’s word, leader in prayer and worship, and guide in living according to the Gospel. The new pastor comes to continue the good work done through the years in this community, and to share his God-given gifts with the people. Through him, Jesus continues his presence as the good shepherd of this flock.  Reception following in Parish Hall.  Everyone welcome!
