On Sunday, Sept. 9 the preacher and celebrant at the closing service for the summer season at Trinity Episcopal Church will be the Rev. Richard L. Fenn.
The service will complete the celebration of the church’s 125th year of service to the Oak Bluffs community. As usual, the service will begin at 9 a.m. The church is in Oak Bluffs across the street from the Steamship Authority wharf.
Upon retiring as rector for 22 years at St. Luke’s Church, Jamestown, N.Y., Reverend Fenn and his wife moved to their house in Edgartown. During his active ministry he also served churches in Pittsfield and Wilbraham. While in western New York, he represented the diocese in Africa and Central America as well as serving as rural dean.
The Fenns are members of St. Andrew’s Episcopal Church in Edgartown. He is active in the Martha’s Vineyard Rotary Club, volunteers at the Edgartown Library and serves on the board of the Martha’s Vineyard Rod and Gun Club. After the service, an informal reception will offer an opportunity to greet the Fenns. More information is available by calling 508-693-3716.
