Scenes from the Welcome Parade
Thank you, Good Shepherd! The parish extended a warm Texas greeting to our new rector the Rev. Channing Smith, his wife Mary, and their daughter Olivia on September 20, with a Welcome Parade on the Windsor campus.
Hundreds of families and individuals masked up, packed up our vehicles with prayer flags and food donations for Community First! Village, and headed to the church parking lot for a drive-through celebration. We heard live music from Holy Ghost Supreme and Sam Hensley, picked up donut holes for the kids and meals from Chef Robert, passed by the offering plate — and, of course, waved hello to Channing and family.
We collectively brought more than 300 bags of food for the residents of Community First! Village, tripling our goal! And our prayer flags now hang on The Common. We invite you to visit and pray for our community in this space of contemplation.
Thank you again for making it a day to remember.
Special gratitude to Renee Myrick for her photography, providing these beautiful memories from the day.
