GOOD NEWS TO SHARE

CALVARY’S NEW DIRECTOR OF MUSIC AND CHOIRMASTER:

Marvin Byas, IV begins July 15. Marvin is an experienced Director/Choreographer and Choral conductor from Kansas City, Missouri. Trained in church music under Dr. Jeffrey Loomis, Marvin served as Choirmaster at St. Paul’s Episcopal Church in Maryville, MO from 2015-2016 where he founded a women’s ensemble and a Lenten Cantata Series. He also served as Peer Minister for the Diocese of West Missouri. In 2016 Marvin became Director of Music & Choirmaster at Christ Episcopal Church in St. Joseph, MO. He served here until November of 2019. While at Christ Church Marvin conducted the choir at several command performances, Two Lenten tours, and various ecumenical services. Marvin has been involved with Columbia Entertainment Company, & Maplewood barn. We welcome Marvin and his family, Bailey Wilkerson and their daughter, Lorelei!

 

THE DIOCESE OF MISSOURI:

You are invited to sign Bishop Deon Johnson’s Anti-Racism Covenant.

A covenant is more than an agreement. A covenant is a relationship of commitment between God and God’s people.

In response to the death of George Floyd and others in police custody, the Rt. Rev. Deon Johnson wrote an anti-racism covenant. The document includes our laments (the things we confess to doing wrong) and our covenant (the promises we make to do better).

Several other bishops in the Episcopal Church and ELCA are supporting our bishop in this action. We invite everyone in our diocese to read the covenant and sign on if you feel called to do so.

As Bishop Deon said, this is an opportunity to move beyond a “statement” and engage in meaningful action to end the sin of racism.
