The Rev. Sean Cox writes for the Diocese of Northern California’s website:

We are so excited to have the Rev. Andrea Baker safely home! She was welcomed back by friends and family at the Sacramento Airport at the end of November, following a deployment to Afghanistan that began in April 2014, where she served as a battalion chaplain for an Aviation unit. The Rev. Andrea Baker is a chaplain in the U.S. Army Reserve and an Associate Rector at Faith, Cameron Park.

Andrea+ returned to church with Zac, The Ministry Dog, on November 30th, and blessed the congregation at the end of the service. Photos from this service are available on our Facebook page here: facebook.com/Faith.Episcopal.Church.

Sean Cox is rector of Faith Church in Cameron Park, where Andrea Baker is associate rector.
