Congratulations to Andrew Brummett and Tim Williams, who were ordained to the Diaconate today at St Francis
a) The service was labeled as "The Ordering of Deacons." Does that prove that our candidates were previously disordered?
b) Is it really propitious to be ordained to the order made famous by Stephan, the first martyr, on a day named for another martyr named Valentinus?
c) With two bishops, fve priests and two newbie deacons, we gotta get a longer altar.
d) The females of the parish clearly participated in the post-ordination meal preparation, because the brisket, mild sausage, hot sausage, pork chops, chicken, roast beef, chicken spaghetti, and fried turkey were separated by bowls of green things wih leaves.
The auto-da-fe will be scheduled at a later date.
