    The vestry reaches milestone and moves toward full accessibility                                             

    Editor's note: The following is from vestry member John McConnell, who is also the chair of our parish's accessibility team. In addition to John's words, the letter contains quotations from other vestry leaders. 

    This past Wednesday your Vestry took another decisive step towards the installation of an elevator for the Parish of the Epiphany. Following a presentation by Robert Taylor, a principal of Taylor & Burns Architects, and a heartfelt discussion of three semi-final designs, the Vestry members voted to select one of the designs and move forward with it.

    The elevator will be located in a corner of the Cloister Garden, to the right of the Office vestibule entry.

    The elevator will, for the first time in our history, provide barrier-free access to the three principal floors of the Church. Among other side benefits of this will be the future use of the Upper Parish Hall for public functions, and also give us complete access to the lower level, the Myra Higgins Formation wing. 

    The architects had advanced the drawings sufficiently to obtain an initial detailed estimate from a cost-estimating consultant, a factor in the Vestry’s decision. The option chosen was not only the least expensive of the three, but was thought to be the most aesthetically pleasing.

    The Accessibility Team has made several presentations to the vestry and has worked for a few years now moving this project forward with regular meetings and conference calls. The Parish benefits from team members with significant expertise in construction law, architectural design, and construction management.

    The next steps will include the hiring of a Construction Manager who will work with the team to further refine the cost estimate, the completion of working drawings and specifications, bidding, and construction next spring and summer.

    In their own words: what individual vestry members are saying:

    Kate Reynolds
    Back in 2010, when the Together Now campaign was launched, Epiphany, in collaboration with the Diocese, committed to supporting many Diocesan-wide outreach and property programs, as well as outreach missions El Hogar and St Stephens, adding to our organ's pipes, improving accessibility into our church and an elevator.  Over the past 8 years the vestry has carefully managed the funds to fulfill all of these commitments.  Tonight, I was pleased we voted on a way forward for the elevator.  Getting to this point has required a great deal of thoughtful and careful work from many people and I am glad we went with the most economical option, so we can start making Epiphany an even more welcoming, equitable and inclusive community. 

    Rich Bartels
    It was a truly educational process to reach our decision. I really appreciated all the time and effort so many put into reaching the decision to install the elevator and make our campus truly accessible! 

    Eunice Aikens-Afful
    I'm proud to have been part of the prayer-filled deliberations about how to meet a need of our parish community in the form of the elevator.  I look forward to connecting with fellow members of the parish to talk about the process during our capital campaign and beyond. 

    Suzanne Owayda
    Through the hard work and dedication of our Accessibility team, the vision of making Epiphany accessible to all is that much closer to becoming reality! 

    David McSweeney
    This represents a significant milestone for our parish. We have an elevator design and we are moving forward with making it a reality. I was immediately drawn to option A for its look and was thrilled that it turned out to be the least expensive design.

    Job Descriptions and Parish of the Epiphany Vestry Policies taken from the 2018 Vestry Orientation Book

    The most recent Parish of the Epiphany By-laws can be found here

    VESTRY JOB DESCRIPTION (3-year term, unless completing a term underway) The work of the vestry has two faces, leadership (both spiritual and temporal) and management. The vestry engages in short and long range planning and reviews the congregation’s mission, programs, staff and facilities. The vestry strives to ensure adequate resources and effective stewardship to accomplish our mission. The vestry keeps the congregation informed about their work and encourages clear and direct communication. The vestry is also responsible for the congregation’s visible presence in the wider community. Vestry members are encouraged to see themselves as spiritual and evangelical beings and as co-creators of ministry with the rector and other staff members. Vestry members should be able to make the following time commitments: vestry meetings (generally the third Wednesday of each month), committee work, vestry retreat, annual meeting, weekly worship services, and congregational events (taking care to seek out old friends and new). Vestry members must generously give of their time, talent and treasure if they expect other members of the congregation to do so.

    WARDEN JOB DESCRIPTION (2-year term; up to 3 consecutive terms) The wardens are elected members of the vestry and provide leadership to the vestry and to the congregation. In addition to presiding at vestry meetings and the vestry responsibilities noted above, the wardens meet regularly with the rector to review the life and work of the congregation, plan ahead, anticipate and resolve problems. Frequent emails are common. Wardens are available to discuss any and all concerns with the rector and with members of the congregation. Wardens are expected to attend services and most church events. Wardens also support and assist the rector, doing whatever needs to be done, and they take special care for the personal well-being of the rector and his family. Wardens are accountable to both the rector and the parish. The wardens sit on the executive committee.

    CLERK JOB DESCRIPTION (1-year term; up to 5 consecutive terms) The clerk is an elected member of the vestry with the responsibilities and time commitment noted for vestry. In addition, the clerk distributes agendas and minutes from previous meetings prior to each vestry meeting, takes minutes at each vestry meeting, corrects and finalizes the minutes, and sees to it that they are signed and appropriately posted. The clerk also posts the notice for the annual meeting and takes minutes and recaps vestry meetings for the 3 Crowns newsletter and writes official notes from the parish when directed to do so. The clerk sits on the executive committee. 

    TREASURER JOB DESCRIPTION (1 year term; up to 6 consecutive terms) The treasurer is an elected member of the vestry with the responsibilities and time commitment noted for vestry. In addition, the treasurer is responsible for the weekly oversight of collections and deposits, periodic payment of bills, and monthly generation of accounting reports. The treasurer must ensure that the congregation’s financial operations are in accordance with canons, bylaws, state and federal laws, and that bills are paid in a timely fashion. The treasurer chairs the finance committee and oversees budget development. Monthly reports are submitted to the vestry and an annual financial report submitted to the congregation at the annual meeting. The treasurer sits on the executive committee.

    ASSOCIATE TREASURER JOB DESCRIPTION (1-year term; up to 6 consecutive terms) The associate treasurer is an elected member of the vestry with the responsibilities and time commitment noted for vestry. In addition, the associate treasurer is a member of the finance committee and assists the Treasurer with the duties described above. The associate treasurer sits on the executive committee.

    CONVENTION DELEGATE JOB DESCRIPTION (1-year term) The two convention delegates represent Parish of the Epiphany as voting members at the annual Diocesan Convention and the occasional special convention. Convention is held on a Friday-Saturday at the beginning of November, often in the Boston area, sometimes farther away. Prior to convention there are evening forums held in various locations at which delegates can learn about and discuss the elections and resolutions to be considered by the convention. If one of the convention delegates is unable to attend convention then a convention alternate will be asked to attend as a voting delegate. The two convention alternates may choose to attend convention as non-voting members.

    Vestry Policies

     These Policies have been adopted and modified by the Vestry to supplement the Parish Bylaws (to see the Parish's By-laws please click here) and to provide an orderly basis for Vestry and Parish operations. The Parish Bylaws and the Constitution and Canons of the Diocese are the governing documents under which these Policies exist, and conflicts between Vestry Policies and those documents will be resolved in favor of the latter. These Policies may be amended or supplemented at any time by Vestry vote. It is recommended that all Policies be reviewed periodically, at least every five years, to ensure that they remain consistent with Parish practice and the governing documents.

    1. Vestry Role and Responsibility

    A. Membership The vestry of the Parish of the Epiphany comprises those officers elected to represent the members in governing the affairs of the Parish in accordance with the Constitution and Canons of The Episcopal Church, the Episcopal Diocese of Massachusetts, and the By-laws of the Parish, plus the rector. As many as three of the fifteen elected members of the Vestry may be at least sixteen years and less then twenty years of age at the time of their election. Vacancies will be filled following provisions of the Parish Bylaws, Article III, Section 3, Elections. Approved November 20, 2013

    B. Expectations The vestry seeks to promote full communication between parishioners and the clergy and officers of the Parish, to model responsible participation in all aspects of Parish affairs, and to develop a fair and informed view on Parish-wide issues. During their terms of office Vestry members will: attend monthly Vestry meetings and serve on at least one Parish committee; participate in key activities of the Parish, including worship services; participate in annual pledging of their financial and human resources, including stewardship activities; participate in special events during the church year; bring concerns of Parish members and their respective committees to the attention of the vestry.

    C. Responsibilities In addition to the responsibilities of the vestry and its members set forth in the Bylaws, the vestry will hold and annual retreat at which, among other matters, the roles of the Wardens, Treasurer and Associate Treasurer, Clerk, committees, and Vestry are discussed.

    D. Meetings Except in cases on emergency, notice of Vestry meetings will be provided to all Vestry members at least forty-eight hours in advance. All Vestry meetings are normally open to members of the Parish. A quorum for conduct of business is defined in Article XI of the Bylaws. It is policy, however, that at least one of the following be in attendance: Warden, Treasurer, or Clerk . A lesser number may adjourn a meeting. Members may attend meetings and vote by telephone, provided that only the members physically present will count toward the quorum.

    E. Electronic Votes Electronic votes may be taken between physical meetings of the Vestry for the purpose of resolving discrete time-critical issues — either previously discussed in a physical meeting of the Vestry or not requiring discussion — that need to be addressed between meetings. Electronic votes are called at the discretion of a Warden or by any officer of the Parish with the concurrence of a second officer. Multiple electronic votes may be active concurrently, but an electronic vote may not be active during a physical meeting. The motion to be voted on shall be distributed to the entire Vestry by the party calling the vote. That information shall contain, at a minimum, the text of the motion and the name of the person proposing the motion. The starting date shall be the date that the vote is called and, unless otherwise specified, the ending date shall be 10 calendar days after the starting date. The first voter to respond with an affirmative vote to the motion will be listed as the second for the motion. All votes shall be sent to the person proposing the motion, with a copy to the Clerk. The quorum for and number of votes needed to approve an electronic vote shall be the same as for an in-person meeting. If the required number of votes to assure the result of the vote has been received, the officer calling the vote may then announce the result. All votes will remain open until the end date of the vote or until all eligible voters have voted, whichever comes first. The final tally of votes shall be recorded and announced by the party calling the vote; however, specific votes by individual members shall not be included. Results of all electronic votes between physical meetings will be recorded in the minutes of the next Vestry meeting. Approved January 18, 2011

    F. Executive Session From time to time, specific circumstances (e.g., sensitive personnel or legal matters) may warrant that some portion of a vestry meeting be conducted in executive session. Executive sessions provide a venue for handling issues that are best discussed in private, for fostering robust discourse, for strengthening trust and communication, and for ensuring confidentiality. Executive sessions enable the vestry to manage itself. They are, by definition, exclusive to vestry members, but others, such as professional advisors, may be invited to join for part or all of the session. The minutes of the regular meeting state when the vestry goes into executive session and when it comes out. Separate minutes of an executive session are maintained and include votes to convene and adjourn the executive session as well as reports of any action taken, with names and details omitted, as appropriate, to protect the confidential nature of the action. Executive session minutes do not include details of deliberations. Executive session minutes are not approved as part of the regular minutes, nor are they posted publicly. Instead, they are reviewed by two additional members of the vestry, usually the wardens or a warden and the rector, and maintained in a secure file in the rector’s office. Approved July 16, 2014

    A reflection on multiple Sunday morning offerings
    Richard Goldhor, Co-Chair, Adult Christian Formation Committee

    I’ve been thinking about the fact that more and more frequently, Epiphany Parishioners have a choice between multiple attractive offerings after church on Sunday. In addition to the usual Adult Forums, interesting and attractive presentations are frequently being sponsored by other groups within the Parish: the Welcoming Committee sponsors Fellowship Sundays; the Family Formation team presents activities for families with young children; and so forth.

    I’ve heard quite a range of comments from Parishioners about the existence of “competing” events. Many rejoice, because the choices are rich and varied. But sometimes the existence of another enticing event can feel like “unfair competition” to a group that has, say, worked hard to prepare a presentation around an important topic at the Adult Forum. There are some patterns in the comments and reactions that indicate “the law of unintended consequences” might be in play. For instance, it’s clear that people notice which event the Rector attends (and which one he doesn’t) and draw conclusions from that choice. Also, because of the physical layout and limitations of the Epiphany facility, we have been using the Upper Parish Hall more and more frequently. This comes with an important set of accessibility issues: people with limited mobility find it difficult or impossible to get to the UPH. We have a number of attractive small meeting rooms, but meetings in those rooms often present difficulties for Parishioners with hearing deficits.

    Some twenty or thirty years ago (which is as far as my memory stretches), “after church everyone came to Hadley Hall.” Of course, this one-sentence summary needs some unpacking. For much of that time, Sunday School for children was offered after church, and a wide cross-section of the Parish adult population gathered in Hadley Hall for “Adult Ed,” as it was called, while the children were in Sunday school. The Rector often attended Adult Ed, and not infrequently led the presentation.

    The Upper Parish Hall was very rarely used on Sunday morning for Parish gatherings, and, indeed, it was quite unusual for any existing “competition” for the Adult Ed presentation—with one very interesting and prominent exception. During the season of Epiphany we have “always” had Epiphany Mini Courses which consist of four or five alternative offerings lasting through the weeks of the Epiphany season, all meeting simultaneously after church. To my knowledge, nobody thought this was odd. The common understanding was that different courses were offered because people had varying interests, and the opportunity to pick and choose was regarded as a good thing.

    These days, the Adult Forum regularly attracts a much more limited demographic. Attendees are mostly older, long-term members of the Parish. Young adults and parents of young children are particularly noticeable by their absence. The Sunday School program is now offered during church, not after church, so parents of Sunday Schoolers are not waiting around for their children.

    At the same time, Epiphany is now offering a wider range of events after church, such as Fellowship Sundays. Many of these events attract participants who would not, or do not, attend the Adult Forum. The Family Formation Program, formally referred to as Children’s Ministry, has expanded. Under Carolyn Hughes’ exceptional leadership, a much wider range of events is offered. Many of these are intentionally designed for both parents and children, and hence are scheduled for after the Sunday service.

    Many attendees of the Adult Forum are “regulars.” They attend every week no matter what the topic.

    Accessibility of the Upper Parish Hall is a pressing concern. The much-discussed elevator has failed to materialize. Although A/V support is available in the UPH, that fact is not commonly known, and setting up the support requires advance planning and a special effort.

    Currently, we have multiple events on some Sundays, and only a single offering on other Sundays. This variation itself has been the source of problems. Some people have indicated that they believe that anything that is presented on a Sunday with multiple events is inherently less important than an event that is the only offering on a particular Sunday.

    I would suggest that we are moving into a moment in Parish life in which we are regularly offering different opportunities for people with different interests, family situations, etc. In many ways this is a blessing and a cause for thanksgiving.

    But there is a price to be paid. I have heard many people lament, “We’re not all together!” This is a valid expression of a genuine cost. But this objection is less compelling than it might have been twenty years ago because “we all” aren’t as “all” as we used to be, even when only one event (the Adult Forum) is being offered.

    In my opinion, there are some adjustments that need to be made in how people think about what’s going on after church on Sunday. I call these adjustments my “Just Because” list:

    • Just Because multiple events are happening simultaneously doesn’t mean that any of them are unimportant;
    • Just Because only one event may be scheduled for a particular Sunday morning doesn’t mean that event is extra important;
    • Just Because Thomas attends an event doesn’t mean that event is extra important.

    We need to continue our work to improve accessibility, although in fact much more progress has been made to improve audio and visual accessibility. For instance, we can provide assisted listening support to any location on the Epiphany campus, and even to events taking place at other locations, such as Parishioners’ homes. However, additional work and investment is needed. Better education and training around accessibility and what we can offer is also needed.

    I offer these thoughts in the hope that readers will feel invited to join the conversation:

    • As a participant, how do you feel about having to choose between multiple offerings?
    • As someone organizing an event, or planning to do so, how do you feel about the possibility of “competing” offerings?
    • What do you think the rules should be that control how many and what kinds of opportunities are offered on a Sunday morning?
    • How can we maximize access and participation in our events?

    Please do raise your voice, and let the Staff and Vestry know what you think!

    What better way to remember a loved one or a special date than by donating towards the altar flowers or the light of the sanctuary lamp? You pick the date that you want to have the flowers or lamp given and you set the donation amount. As a guide, Altar flowers and Sanctuary candles cost approximately $60.  

    If you have a loved one or a remembrance that you want to be recognized, please contact Sarah in the Parish Office to get more information and arrange an appropriate date.

    Following the Parish’s bylaw revision process, which happened last year, we are pleased to announce that this year’s nominating committee is organized and ready for business! Laura Aldrich, Thomas Brown, Jonathan Foot, Martha Lewis, and Suzanne Owayda met in early August, and we will meet regularly throughout the next two months. The addition of the Rector and a Warden (Suzanne Owayda) is specifically called for in our new bylaws. Together, the five of us are responsible for considering your recommendations of people whom you believe have the requisite gifts and skills to exercise the ministry of oversight at the Parish of the Epiphany and at our 2019 diocesan convention.

    Look for us on Sundays and expect a targeted email from us asking you to nominate people. We will prayerfully consider every nomination, but we definitely need your help. Unfortunately, last year’s nominating committee heard from only 6 people (all 30+ nominations were submitted by only 6 parishioners); we hope you’ll take the time to nominate your sisters and brothers, or yourself!

    We will identify 4 people to lead the Parish of the Epiphany (all of whom will serve on the vestry):

    3 vestry members for a 3 year terms, and 1 warden for a 2 year term.

    2 people to be delegates to the 2019 diocesan convention.

    3 persons to serve on the nominating committee for 2019. 

    Visit the vestry resource page to read the job descriptions. Our treasurer, Cherie Collin; associate treasurer, Alan Briggs; and clerk, Richard Bartels, all have agreed to serve again. Therefore, we shall nominate them, and we won’t be seeking names for those positions. An opportunity to nominate others at the Annual Meeting on 28 January 2019, will be given, as it always is, for every position.

    Please keep us in your prayers, and know that you are in ours.

    Laura, Jonathan, Martha, Suzanne, and Thomas

    Dear Friends of God,

    For the past twelve months, our entire parish community has been cared for by Michael Schmidt and Mary Street, who have lovingly overseen a project to re-order and improve our beloved chapel.

    The Parish had the financial resources to undertake this work because of generous memorial gifts, as well as the prudent leadership of the property committee. In addition, we ourselves, along with many staff and formation leaders, have made contributions. 

    Improvements include:

    • New recessed lighting
    • Freshly painted walls
    • Refinished floors
    • New rugs (a gift from the Episcopal Divinity School and the Reverend Randall Chase)
    • Built-in capacity for improved audio-visual usage
    • New art from Zambia and Zimbabwe (a gift from the Reverend Louis W. Pitt, Jr.)
    • A place where both children and adults gather to worship, pray, and learn. 

    In mid-September, new wooden, upholstered chairs will arrive. These chairs provide the flexibility to arrange the room in a variety of ways and to store them safely and securely when they're not used. 

    Each chair costs $250.00. 

    You should know that we have led this effort, pledging among ourselves at the June vestry meeting (as well as some staff and other leaders who were at the meeting) nearly 80% of the funds we need. We could have funded the project that night, but we want all of you to join us, to make our sacred space a place we create together. Your contributions will enable us to purchase additional chairs, new altar vestments, and have the capacity to commission additional art. We hope you will join us and support our Parish Chapel.

    Our goal is to have every member of the parish contribute something; that could be as small as $1.00 or as much as God tells you! If you would like to make a gift, please email us. In your email include the name, if your gift is in memory or in honor of a loved one.

    On the First Sunday of Advent, 2 December, we will re-dedicate the Chapel to the glory of God. With your generosity, we look forward to celebrating the restoration of this beautiful and essential part of our church.  

    Faithfully in Christ,

    Eunice Aikins-Afful, Leslie Aitken, Rich Bartels, Alan Briggs, Cherie Collin de Casaubon, Thom Fries, David Greeley, Matthew Hodges, Darwin
    Keith-Lucas, John McConnell, Dave McSweeney, Suzanne Owayda, Tom Pavilon, Kate Reynolds, Jennifer Shire, Gabrielle Stott, Jane White

    The Assistant Director of Music/Organist Search Committee would like to update you on our progress. After receiving approximately 10 resumes and screening applicants by phone, three candidates were invited to interview at Epiphany. The interviewees were asked to prepare pieces  as though they were going to play for an actual service and one piece of their choosing. They were also allowed to schedule time to practice on our organ before the interview. The committee actively listened and engaged with each applicant during the interviews. However, the right fit for our worship team has yet to be found.

    Over the summer and into the fall, we will continue to search for someone who would be a wonderful addition to our worship staff. We will also explore restructuring the position a bit to make it more attractive to musicians who might not want a regular Sunday commitment. Of course, as we continue the search, Craig will continue his roll as our Director of Music on a full time basis. We appreciate your continued prayers and support.

    As some of you may know, Parish of the Epiphany recently became a member of Stephen Ministries. Stephen Ministry is one-to-one lay caregiving ministry is named for Stephen, one of the first seven laypeople called by the church to assist the apostles in caring for others. (You can read Stephen’s story in Acts 6 and 7.) Stephen Ministry is spiritual care-giving to someone who has lost a loved one, who is ill, recently divorced, retired, an empty-nest parent, or any other major life transition.

    Earlier this month, Barbara DeWolfe, Ted Kellogg, Gloria Korta, Joan O’Connor, and Miriam Gelfer traveled to Orlando for a week of training to become Stephen Leaders for Epiphany. This dedicated team will be recruiting and training parishioners to become Stephen Ministers. Do you feel a calling to care for others who are hurting? Do you desire the personal joy that comes from being a skilled, compassionate listener and spiritual caregiver? In the next few months, our Stephen Leader Team will begin training some of the members of our congregation to serve as Stephen Ministers. To learn more about Stephen Ministry, speak to any member of our Team or to Thomas. You can learn more about Stephen Ministries here

    If you poke your head into the Dewart Room (the room net to the Chapel), you will see on the far wall a friendly shepherd waving to you as he guides his sheep. This picture is one of a series of photographs that were taken during our visit to the Holy Land in 2015. Along with 36 other pilgrims, we spent nearly two weeks walking, learning and praying where Jesus walked, taught and prayed. The photographs, along with their accompanying descriptions and Bible quotations, attempt to reflect some of the beauty, history and spiritual power of that amazing, holy region.

    This exhibit was sponsored by Epiphany's Gifts and Memorials committee, thanks to a bequest from Margaret Hemmingsen. Margaret's gift also funded the renovation and refurnishing of the Dewart Room.

    We hope you enjoy the exhibit!
