"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

The new deacon who would be our curate

The man who, God willing, later this summer will become our new curate at St. Vincent's Cathedral, Andrew Petta, was ordained a deacon in Christ's holy, Catholic Church on Saturday at St. Andrew's Church in downtown Fort Worth. It was a lovely service at which Bishop Iker was our preacher. In the photo below I'm standing between Dean Ryan Reed and the Rev. Canon Richard Cantrell of St. Vincent's. Deacon Kerwin Wade of the cathedral stands on the other side of Dean Reed.
Warmest congratulations to Deacon Petta, who will take up his duties in early July after he graduates from Nashotah House. May God bless his ministry richly!
