Tuesday, December 21st at 6:30 in the Evening at St. Stephen's
As many of you are aware, our own Fr. Ted was ordained in another tradition and has been acting as Pastor of St. Stephen's under special license from the Bishop. Well, after a two year process your vestry is pleased to announce that on Tuesday, December 21st at 6:30 p.m., Bishop Andy Doyle will visit St. Stephen's to officially ordain Fr. Ted as a priest in the Episcopal Church and install him as the Rector of St. Stephen's. This is a great milestone in the history of our parish as it is only the second time in our 158 year history that a priest has been ordained at St. Stephen's (the first was Fr. Bob Green, who was ordained by Bishop Quinn in 1948). If you have never been to the ordination of a priest, it is quite an event, with lots of pomp and circumstance, beautiful music, and the great drama of the liturgy, where the majesty and the mystery of God is proclaimed and experienced.
A catered reception in the Parish Hall immediately follows the service, so please join us as we celebrate and "officially" welcome our new Rector!
