With exit from imperilment, St. Peter's Episcopal Church moving forward

From The Baltimore Sun-

When members of a historic Ellicott City church were asked at a special renewal service last week if they were ready to continue their ministry with a new priest, they shouted, "We are!" with a thunderous enthusiasm that soared up to the church's cathedral ceiling.

With the ceremonial approval of the Rev. Henry Thomas Slawson III on June 17, St. Peter's at Ellicott Mills Episcopal Church celebrated its exit from three years in imperilment, a state of near-closure that had been declared in January 2012 by the Episcopal Bishop of Maryland, the Right Rev. Eugene Taylor.
