St. Martin's Church in Williamsburg bid a fond farewell to its interim Associate Rector, The Reverend Chuck Mulally, on December 10. The "Chuck Roast" began with an entertaining video of Rev. Chuck's favorite song, "I'm So Lonesome Since My Horse Died." This was accompanied by a child in a horse costume who presented Rev. Chuck with a 20 Gallon foam hat and a real chuck roast. He was honored by three Senior Wardens who recognized him as being St. Martin's "Gold Star Interim Associate Rector." They gave him an engraved, sterling silver medal of St. Martin of Tours. He was gifted with a signed, original Pueblo Kachina storyteller figure from the office staff who will never forget the wonderful stories he told every day and in each of his sermons. Rev. Chuck and his wife Leith played a big role in re-energizing the Newcomers procedures at St. Martin's and was given a star buckle and super star badges in thanks. The roast ended with a power point and heartfelt speech regaling Rev. Chuck's devotion to pastoral care. The parishioners of St. Martin's are looking forward with great anticipation to the next chapter in the life of their church, but Reverend Chuck will be very much missed and will always hold a special place in the heart of St. Martin's.
