The Preface to the Ordination Rites (BCP 510) states: “No persons are allowed to exercise the offices of bishop, priest, or deacon in this Church unless they are so ordained…with the laying on of hands by bishops who are themselves duly qualified to confer Holy Orders.” This Tuesday, February 23, 2021, at 7 o’clock in the evening, you are invited to participate in this work of the church through your virtual presence and prayers as I am ordained to the Sacred Order of Priests. Because of health and safety protocols the service is closed to the public, but it will be livestreamed on the St. Mark’s Facebook page in the same way as our normal Sunday services. Despite being physically separate, the God who hears and sees all, will hear and see this work we do together.
The Rev. Clint E. Brown
