Long-time parishioner is honored by Bishop Provenzano

Grace Kontje, a founding member of St. Margaret’s Church, was awarded the Bishop’s Cross on June 4.

In a citation from Bishop Provenzano, Grace was honored for her decades of service. She was the first female member of the Executive Committee and held many lay leadership roles including Warden, Treasurer, and Altar Guild Directress, in addition to being a member of the Outreach and Rector Search Committees. Grace’s church family presented her with a framed image of St. Margaret’s and an album filled with photos and hand-written memories. We look forward to her periodic visits!
