"The Preachers chiefly shall take heed that they teach nothing in their preaching, which they would have the people religiously to observe and believe, but that which is agreeable to the Doctrine of the Old Testament and the New, and that which the Catholick Fathers and Ancient Bishops have gathered out of that Doctrine." A proposed canon of Elizabeth I, 1571

Congratulations to Our Newest Deacons

Image Hosted by ImageShack.us
Today at St. Vincent's Cathedral the Rt. Rev. Jack Leo Iker, bishop of Ft. Worth, ordained the Rev. John Jenkins and the Rev. John Jordan to the sacred order of deacons. God willing they will be ordained priests next autumn. May God bless the good deacons in their ministries. Credit to Fr. Matkin for this fine photo of the bishop with the newly ordained at today's post-ordination reception. The other bishop in the photo is the Rt. Rev. William Wantland, the retired bishop of Eau Claire.
