My name is Issa Ackall and I've been attending St. Bede's with my family for the better part of two decades. The church has become an instrumental part of our community and our family during that time. My three boys -- Naser, Mousa and Andrew -- spent the better part of their formative years in the church and been involved in everything from Youth Groups, Summer Pilgrimages, Vacation Bible School and much more (the Christmas Eve Pageant is still their favorite!). My wife Helen serves on the Altar Guild and volunteers with PTS. I have been volunteering as an Usher for the last few years. I look forward to join the Vestry and contribute to the enrichment of St. Bede’s community by working closely with all of you to make our church a pillar in the community by leveraging my 25 years of experience in the public sector.
