Grace Lutheran Church West Springfield is pleased to announce that the Rev. Robert E. “Bob” Villani will serve as presiding minister for the 9:30 a.m. worship service this Sunday, June 24, 2012.
Pastor Villani, now retired, served as Grace’s interim minister on two separate occasions: 2002-2003 and 2006-2007. Prior to coming to Grace in 2002, he served many years as the pastor of St. Peter’s in neighboring Holyoke, Mass. In 2007 he was chosen as the recipient of the Sister Agnes Broderick Justice and Peace Award, a special recognition by the Providence Ministries for the Needy Inc., presented to a person who stands in compassionate love with the poor.
All are encouraged to attend and share this special opportunity to celebrate the Lord with Pastor Villani.
