Last night (May 29) I was ordained a deacon for the Diocese of Saskatoon by Bishop Albert LeGatt in my internship parish at Macklin. I’ve been posted at St. Paul’s Cathedral in Saskatoon for the summer.
What do I say about that… it’s still somewhat surreal. I have never been more excited or nervous (!) for anything before. It was an incredible, overwhelming, and beautiful celebration, and in many ways it is still sinking in. I keep thinking, “Woah – I’m a deacon!” And it’s a pretty amazing feeling.
It’s quite wonderful and, as I said, surreal, to know that at some fundamental level I am changed for ever (as in eternity).
What a night.
I hope to have some photos up soon, but Elaine has several up on her blog, so check them out!
