On Thursday, 15 May the newly revived Aquidneck Island Deanery met at Emmanuel Church in Newport. A variety of items were discussed, including electing Fr. Nathan Humphrey of St. John’s as our Clergy Dean, Ms. Lil Hargrove of Emmanuel as our Lay Dean. Other items discussed included incorporating St. Matthew’s on Jamestown as part of the Aquidneck Deanery. (St. Matthew’s is the only church in Newport County not a part of Aquidneck, instead belonging to the Naragansett Deanery.) The next meeting of the Deanery will be on September 10th, at the Church of the Holy Cross.
