At this momentous time, we wish to recognize the marvelous leadership of the Rev. Dr. David L. Snyder during our parish’s transition period. During what could have been a trying time in the life of a church, Father Dave provided us with a stabilizing influence, wise and insightful instruction, and a well-timed sense of humor! Thank you, Father Dave. And thank you to your wife, Susan, who supported you and brightened Good Shepherd with joy and love. We wish you both the best and we appreciate your gifts to us.
Father Dave’s ministry at Good Shepherd was celebrated at services November 21 and 22 with the Farewell Liturgy for an Interim Priest. We presented Father Dave with a special gift from our parish, a stained glass replica of the Good Shepherd Window, one of only fifty pieces commissioned for our centennial celebration in 2007. We pray that it will remind him of his year with us as our Temporary Shepherd.
God Speed, Father Dave!
