Dear All Saints Parish,

On this joyous Easter day I am sad to announce that it is in fact my last day with you all. Due to circumstances out of my control my family and I will be moving back to North Carolina this week. It has been such a blessing, and a privilege, working here at All Saints. I would like to thank Fr. Pelster for giving me the opportunity to come here and direct the choir and schola. I would also like to offer my deepest gratitude to those in the choir and schola for their hard work, dedication, and openness to trying new things with me. Working with you all has been certainly one of the highest points of my career up to this point!

Please pray for me and my family, as we will for you. The next stage of life is uncertain, but I know that God’s plan is greater than my own. We leave with sadness, but will look upon our time here with fondness, and a few stories as well. Christ is risen, alleluia!

In Christ,
Jacob D. Temple
