Summer Ordination

There was a full house at St. John’s Cathedral on Tuesday as Bonnie Dowling and Abraham (Monybony) Kuol Chuol were ordained to the priesthood, and Dan Thagard and Lorna Howell were ordained to the diaconate. It was a joyful celebration- congratulations, Bonnie, Abraham, Dan, and Lorna! Please keep these four in prayer as they begin this new phase of their ministry among us.
