Members of St. John Lutheran Church will gather for a reception following the 11 a.m. service Sunday to bid farewell to Vicar Timothy J. Kielley.
Vicar Tim, as he is known, has been at St. John's since August 1991. He was to spend a year here gaining practical experience, a part of the training required by the Lutheran Theological Seminary in Gettysburg, Pa.
But, the parish asked him to continue ministering at St. John's, working part time while he completed his last year of seminary training. While here, he assisted the Rev. William F. R. Gilroy, pastor of St. John's.
Vicar Tim recently graduated from the seminary and will be ordained at the Synod Convention at Lebanon Valley College by Bishop Guy Edminston on June 12. Vicar Tim has been assigned to Paradise Lutheran Church in Thomasville, Pa., and will begin his duties there as assistant pastor on June 13.
Dr. Gilroy will preach at the Service of Installation at 3 p.m.
