Yesterday, I was officially introduced

Yesterday, I was officially introduced to my field-placement parish as their new seminarian. Here is what the printed announcements said, “We are privileged and very happy to welcome to St. Paul’s Mr. Robert Griffith, as student at The General Theological Seminary who will be serving as our Seminarian. Mr. Griffith is a Candidate for Holy Orders from the Diocese of Ohio. Please introduce yourself to him, and by all means remember him in your prayers.”
I like the last half of the last sentence the most, because I certainly need them! Officially, I’m not quite a candidate yet, just a lowly Postulant. Candidacy will be this spring. Father Cullen, the Rector, mentioned also that he didn’t want anyone coming up to him and telling him that they don’t like me, because he does. This is a great little Anglo-Catholic parish with an incredible history. I think I am very fortunate to have landed at this place. The church is St. Paul’s Episcopal Church, Carroll St. in the Carroll Gardens section of Brooklyn.
