Around Our Diocese
My Identity as a Deacon
The Rev. Daniel McMillan reflects on his identity as a deacon, saying, "As a deacon, I am one who serves. And pastoral care has been a big part of that. Currently, I have been seeing parishioners on a one-on-one basis for coffee. I hear about spiritual journeys, and I always marvel at how God brings people from sometimes radically different backgrounds into our church. For me, this is the beauty of being Episcopalian. . ."

Ordination to the Diaconate
God willing and the people consenting, the Rt. Rev. Dr. Susan Brown Snook will ordain Michael Kilpatrick and Pete Martin (our former Seminarian!) to the Holy Order of Deacons on Saturday, October 22 at 11 a.m. at St. Paul's Cathedral. This is a sacred service open to all. The Episcopal tradition claims an unsevered blessing from St. Peter down through the ages to people who are ordained today. The bishop's office will livestream the service on diocesan Facebook page and YouTube channel. Clergy: red stoles. Reception follows.
