St. Bart's honored the ministry of the Rev. J.D. Clarke, our longtime deacon and former director of our Community Ministry programs. After Bishop Wolfe presented JD with a St. Bart's pin, the congregation responded with a spontaneous standing ovation. Bishop Wolfe also commissioned ushers and greeters during the service and presented head usher Christian Burke with a letter honoring Christian's long and faithful ministry. In appreciation of his leadership, the ushers gave Christian a chair from the University of Virginia (Christian’s alma mater). Canon Iyad Qumri visited St. Bart’s and the Episcopal Peace Fellowship met after services.
