There’s a new rector at St. David’s Episcopal Church in DeWitt — and she’s ushering in a youthful spirit.
The Rev. Jacqueline Schmitt says she wants to increase youth involvement at the church, and much of her experience has been in young adult and campus ministry. Her energy toward this goal will be supplemented by a new director of music, who not so long ago was a graduate student at Syracuse University.
“The future of the music ministry and of the church depends on the next generation taking an active role,” said Abel Searor, the new organist and choir director at St. David’s.
We couldn’t agree more. We also feel that this view can, and should, be applied in a variety of places — one of them being this very newspaper.
The Eagle Bulletin benefits from weekly contributions from a variety of sources. Local libraries, schools, non-profit organizations, parents and many others all help breath life into the paper by submitting stories, photos and other useful information.
While we hope and expect to see this continue, we’d also like to see more contributions from some of our younger readers.
High school students, college students, first-time parents and those of you just starting on a new career: we want to hear from you. Think of the Bulletin as your microphone.
Whether you want to sound off on a local issue, or simply share an experience you feel is worth sharing, send us your thoughts so we can offer them to the community.
Your contributions — whether they be in the form of an article, letter to the editor, column or a photograph — can be sent to firstname.lastname@example.org.
We look forward to hearing from you!
