It’s been great to have Mycah living, working and worshiping with us at St Chrysostom’s over the last year, and what a fantastic contribution she has made.
Mycah came to us on the wonderful Lutheran Church scheme which encourages young adults to work in different churches around the world. She brought with her insights and questions from the US that encouraged, challenged and animated us.
Mycah has been involved in a whole host of different activities while at St C’s. She has joined in fully in what we do. She’s been on pilgrimage – to Rocamadour and Ladyewell, she has worked each week in St Chrysostom’s School, she has cycled to Oughtrington and back, made an act of witness with church friends at Manchester Pride, slept out overnight in the winter in solidarity with the homeless, taken different roles in worship, and much more.
And through it all she has kept her lovely smile, her generous nature, and welcoming and fun spirit. We said goodbye to Mycah today as she prepares to return to the States and she went with our love and prayers. We will miss her, and we will love to hear from her as time goes on.
Several different people of Church were asked to give words which they would use to describe Mycah and we made them into a word cloud and gave her a copy here it is – and what lovely things people have said about her.
