Dr. Craig Cramer Retires as Parish Organist
Dr. Craig J. Cramer retired as St. David’s organist, effective September 1st. The Parish is forever grateful for the good and godly service that he has offered since 2002.
“Craig Cramer is one of the finest Organists in the United States; indeed, in the world. It has been a privilege to work with him these past fourteen years. His play is sterling in quality, and his music has helped our prayers immeasurably. Indeed, it has been a joy to listen to the richness of his offering, especially as it is clearly an offering to Almighty God with the utmost delight and deepest love for the Lord Jesus Christ who loves us first. We wish him well in his approaching retirement.”
On the first Wednesday of each month, we offer a light supper of soup and salad at 6:00 pm. This is free and open to the public. All are welcome. The next Soup Supper will be on July 5.
