Dear Parishioners and Friends of The Church of the Advent,

I am pleased to announce that we have called Jeremy Bruns to begin his work as the new Associate Organist & Choirmaster of the Church of the Advent, beginning September 1, 2018. Mr Bruns is well known to many of us as sometime Organist & Choirmaster at our sister parish, All Saints, Ashmont. He comes to us now from the position of Assistant Director of Music at St Paul's Church and Choir School in Harvard Square. His accomplishments are impressive, his r&eacutesum&eacute speaks for itself. What is not mentioned is that he is a delightful, clever and caring person. We look forward to welcoming Jeremy and his wife Cathy to our family.

Yours in Christ,

The Rev'd Allan B Warren III, Rector
