You are all invited to my ordination to the priesthood in the Episcopal Church on December 18th at St. James Episcopal Church in Richmond at 7:00 pm. So, please join in this celebration, and if you can't make it, please send your prayers and good thoughts on this special day.
[If you are wondering, "whaaat? I thought he was a priest!?" I have not been an imposter the last 5 months, rather, those who are moving toward ordination to the priesthood spend at least 6 months as a "transitional deacon." These deasons are also clergypeople in the Episcopal Church, but whose ministry is largely a "servanthood" ministry of "bringing the church to the world, and the world to the church" and whose ministry is largely that of reminding the church about those in need in the world. I plan to say more about the "transitional diaconate" after the Thanksgiving Holiday, so stay tuned for a new video!]
Peace be with you,
The Rev. Peter M. Carey
