I moved in August 2019 for a job at NHRMC, Jeremy joined me in October. We moved from Rennsselaer, NY. When I moved to Wilmington, I searched for different Episcopal churches in the area on Google and Facebook. I started coming in the fall of 2019. Jeremy joined me in once we sold our house in New York. We love the people and the community. We felt genuinely welcome and included in the community Everyone is friendly and looks out for each other. Soon after we started coming to the church, we joined the band. The music program is so much fun. All musicians get a chance to shine and share their gifts with the group and the congregation. The band is like a family. Holy Cross has so many great opportunities for gathering together-we enjoyed the lectio divina, the contemplative prayer, the game nights, the agape breakfast, and the events with the Muslim community.
We are both from Upstate New York and met online. Our first date was a Ringo Starr concert. We were active in our church in New York, and we are still connected to my home parish of St. Peter's Episcopal Church in Bennington, VT. Fun fact-we were married by the priest of St. Peter's at the Bennington Museum in Bennington, VT. Jeremy programs industrial machines for Precision Valve and Automation, based out of Cohoes, NY. I am a ServiceNow administrator at NHRMC. Hobbies: Heather-crochet, knitting, hanging out with our cat Rusty, volunteering at Skywatch Rescue, IT projects, blogging, writing, Bollywood movies, learning to cook Indian dishes, contemplative prayer, reading. Jeremy: Brazilian Jiu Jitsu, cooking, reading, contemplative prayer. We enjoy road trips and getting out in nature. We are so excited to be close to the ocean here. To new members and prospective members I say-Please join us! This community is amazing. Come and see :)
