Approved for Ordination to the Priesthood

On Friday, I received a call on my cell phone while I was teaching a class of 3rd graders about Anglican Worship at Williamsbug during colonial times.

The substance of the call was that I was approved for ordination to the priesthood which was the final hurdle in a 6 year discernment process which included 3 years of parish work, 3 years of seminary, and the last few months as a transitional deacon. While I expected to be approved, strange things sometimes happen in these processes, so it is a great joy for me to move through to this step of the process and I rejoice. So, if you are in Philly on December 15th, come by the Philadelphia (Episcopal) Cathedral, and send along your prayers and good thoughts if you cannot be there.

Peace and blessings,

Congratulations Peter! It'll be a great day for the Church.

How did I not know you were Diocese of PA? Philly is like 45 minutes from Princeton (which, duh, you probably already know...) so I will mark it on my calendar and pray that my crazy parish can let me loose for a day. Hooray for you! Hooray for the church!
