Sad news to share

Dear Friends and Parishioners of AMC,

Its never easy to find the words to share sad news such as this.
Beloved parishioner, long-time Chorus North Shore member, true gentle-man,
Grey Bowden died this morning surrounded by family and loved ones.  He will
indeed be greatly missed by many.  A service to celebrate and to offer
thanks for his wonderful life will be held at Ascension Memorial Church in
the near future, the date to be determined soon.  The loss we feel is equal
to the love we had for Grey and to the love, kindness, and generosity he
gave to us.  May his dearly beloved soul rest in peace and we may hold his
loving family in our thoughts and prayers.

God’s peace,

Sad News To Report

Dear Friends and Parishioners of Ascension Memorial Church,

Longtime resident of Ipswich and former AMC parishioner Barbara Beaman, now living in Shelburne, Vermont, recently informed me of the sad and unexpected death of her son, Marcos.

The Burial Rite for Marcos will be observed at Ascension Memorial Church on Friday, September 18th at 3PM.  A reception will follow in St. Matthew’s Parlor.

Please hold Barbara in your thoughts and prayers.  May beloved soul of Marcos rest in peace and may he feel alive and at home in God’s loving embrace.

God’s peace,
