Rev. Larry Barbary and his wife, Barb, are entering retirement this week.
Pastor Barbary conducted a joint service of the Albion and Loretto United Methodist Churches on Sunday, June 12, in Albion. A farewell potluck supper was held after the service.
Rev. Barbary has served the two churches for the past three years, and has been in the ministry for more than 10 years in Kansas and Nebraska.
The Barbarys are moving to Florida in retirement.
The new minister for both churches will be Rev. Janet Burgel, who will begin later this month.
