Mulvey, previously Rector at Episcopal Church of the Ascension in Seattle, Wash., will celebrate her first services at St. Anthony on June 28 at 5 p.m. and June 29 8 a.m. and 10 a.m.
A reception to welcome Mulvey
family will follow each service.
"I thank you for the privilege and honor of being called to serve as your Rector
," said Mulvey
in a letter to the families of St. Anthony.
"I was pleased to discover your support of many wonderful ministries and to hear about your dreams and visions for the future.
"As I think about the process involved in the search and call of a Rector
," continued Mulvey
, "it seems to me that it is very much like a dance led by the spirit.
I trust that with the Holy Spirit's gentle guidance, we will step out together in faith and begin God's ,dance' of ministry."
In a letter to the congregation, the Rector Search Committee
noted: "We were seeking a Rector
to help us explore ways to contemporize our worship experience, making it relevant and meaningful to both those who have grown in the Anglican tradition as well as those who are new to the Episcopal Church
The Holy Spirit has answered our prayer in allowing Dorian
to hear our call."
The search committee feels that Mulvey
is well suited to help St. Anthony achieve its goals to grow as a community of faith.
"Dorian will enrich us as a faith community and allow us to not only reach to our immediate community of Scottsdale and Fountain Hills, but also help us each identify our own gifts for discipleship in the world," noted Senior Warden, Catherine Gilbert.
