Beginning October 1, 2017 the Rev’d Sherry Snyder will begin her diaconal ministry at St. Paul’s by-the-Sea!  We are delighted to welcome Sherry and her husband John. St. Paul’s has been grateful in the past for the ministry of deacons, including the Rev’ds Penny Morrow, and Robin Robb. Among Sherry’s ministries will be conducting a support group for those whose family or friends have gone through hospice care as well as hospital ministry and service at the altar during the Holy Eucharist. Welcome Sherry!
