PLEASE WELCOME REVEREND BRUCE MACDUFFIE!

he Vestry is delighted to welcome the Reverend Bruce MacDuffie from Westminster, VT, who will be leading worship at St. Luke’s during the months of November and December. Many of you may remember Bruce from a two-week period when Heidi had broken her ankle and Reverend MacDuffie seamlessly filled in.

Bruce MacDuffie is canonically resident in Central New York and

licensed in that diocese and those of New Hampshire and Vermont

coming to the aid of congregations which need his help for services

or pastoral care.

Bruce retired from the Diocese of Central New York in 2005, then serving as teacher and priest in North Dakota. He returned to Central NY in 2010, and retired to Westminster, VT, in 2015, where Bruce served three terms as Justice of the Peace and also volunteered with his wife for Westminster Cares, providing rides for clients and delivering meals three

days a month. He has served as supply for a number of parishes in Vermont, New Hampshire, Alabama, and Central New York.

Friendly and outgoing, Bruce is married to Lee MacDuffie, a retired psychotherapist and artist; and they share 7 children, 8 grandchildren, and 5 great grandchildren. Lee is delightful and regularly accompanies

her husband. She will welcome company in her pew at Sunday services, when Bruce is leading worship.

The Vestry is relieved and excited to have Bruce step in to lead us in services and celebrations through the most joyous, family-oriented months of the year.
