Its official

Well, the date is set and all that is left to do is pass my final interview with the Commission on Ministry next Wednesday, which at this point shouldn’t be a problem.
So, June 3rd at 10:00 am at Trinity Cathedral in Cleveland, Lord willing and the creek don’t rise, I will be ordained to the Sacred Order of Priests, a Presbyter in Christ’s One Holy, Catholic, and Apostolic Church (aside from the fact that certain large segments of that Church don’t recognize Anglican Orders. Oh the joy of it all!). I will be ordained along with the Transitional Deacons, one year after my diaconal ordination.
I regret that my ordination will not be at St. Paul’s in Carroll Gardens, Brooklyn, where I now serve, but if I want to be ordained before General Convention, this is what has to happen. The next two months are going to be crazy, and I do hold a bit of anxiety about what will happen after General Convention.
