"You won't be the same again," the preacher tells the boy in Flannery O'Conner's short story, The River, and this is what the Venerable William C. Parnell, Archdeacon of New York, told those gathered on Saturday, January 11, 2014 to celebrate a covenant of mission between three churches: Calvary Church, Hillcrest; Church of the Ascension, Claymont; and Grace Church, Talleyville.
