Advent is a time of preparation and new beginnings, and so it is in the Diocese of Northwestern Pennsylvania! We are pleased to announce the ordinations of Timothy Dyer to the priesthood, and Jason Shank to the diaconate in the coming weeks.
Bishop Sean will ordain Timothy Dyer to the priesthood on Sunday, December 11 at 4:00 PM at Trinity Memorial Church in Warren, PA. All are welcome to attend, and please keep Tim in your prayers as he begins this next step in his ministry.
Then on Thursday, December 15th at 10:00 AM everyone is invited to the Cathedral of St. Paul as Bishop Sean ordains Jason Shank of Resurrection Church, Hermitage to the Diaconate. Please keep Jason and all those of the Resurrection church plant in your prayers.
Almighty and everlasting God, by whose Spirit the whole body of your faithful people is governed and sanctified: Receive our supplications and prayers, which we offer before you for all members of your holy Church, that in their vocation and ministry they may truly and devoutly serve you; through our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ, who lives and reigns with you, in the unity of the Holy Spirit, one God, now and for ever. Amen.
