One of the main events of the Annual Parish Meeting on January 29th at 9:15 am (between the
services) is the election of our 4 Vestry Members to serve until January 2015. A nominating
committee made up of the outgoing Vestry members has put prayer, thought and discussion
into the slate of Nominees below.
Thomas L. Baxley
I have been active in Episcopal Churches since 1967 and a member
of St. Paul in the Desert since 2007. I serve as an Acolyte, Chalice
Bearer, and Worship Coordinator at the 8 am service. I am also a
member of the Altar Guild.
Jerome F. Di Noto (Jerry)
I grew in learning about St. Paul’s through the Dignity group, which
holds its weekly liturgy in the church. I became an active member
in 2010 and was formally received last year. Currently, I chair the
Adult Faith Formation Team which is responsible for sponsoring
regularly scheduled classes on various theological and spirituality
based topics. I worship at the 8 am service.
I came to St. Paul’s two years ago to worship and serve in a
community that was welcome to all because it is deeply committed
to and active life in Christ. My background includes teaching
career, a commission sales business, and raising two children. I am
a member of the Choir.
I have been a parishioner at St. Paul’s for 10 years. I have served as
a lector, an acolyte, a chalice bearer, and a member of the church
choir for two years. In my professional life, I have been a Social
Worker for 15 years. I worship at the 8 am service.
