To the dear people of St Stephen’s
The funeral service for our beloved interim rector, The Rt. Rev. John Tarrant, was held Saturday, August 29 at 1:00 p.m. Due to restrictions related to COVID-19, the service was private. However, the Diocese of Western Massachusetts arranged for a live stream of the service. If you missed the live stream, a replay of the service remains available for viewing.
As John said about the abundance of caution necessary to protect our community, “This all seems a bit strange, but such are the times in which we are living.”
Bishop Fisher reminded us “how many lives one person can touch and bless in a lifetime of servant leadership” in the announcement he made earlier this week.
We invite you to hold Pat, Jessica, Mary, Alec, his grandchildren, and the entire family in prayer during this time of grief.
Tom Dillon and Erin Sullivan
