President's Report

Fall 2016

As we close the 133rd season of our Chapel we are again thankful for the tremendous support and faithfulness of our summer congregants. As always the Chapel community has remained steadfast in its mission and its Outreach into the village and the wider island. The Chapel has benefited throughout its long history from strong ministerial leadership and a vast number of dedicated and committed volunteers who impact every facet of our corporate life.

Through the capable tutelage of our current minister The Reverend J. Carr Holland 111, the Chapel has broadened its presence in the village. To the undersigned he is known as the “Village Vicar” for his omnipresence in the community. He has been fortunate to build upon the strong foundation laid by his predecessors, The Reverend Dr Bruce Rigdon who served the Chapel for 9 years and the Reverend Stanley Johnson who served for 43 years.

At the core of the Chapel’s leadership is the devotion of her volunteers - Previous presidents, the governing board, board members and committee members. Currently there are 54 in number, all of whom work together to sustain the life and work of this religious community.

We now put our historic building and grounds to rest during the winter months, but the life of the Chapel continues throughout the year with our community outreach programs touching many lives on the island and in the world.
