The Ordination of Kate Maxwell to the Priesthood
I am delighted to announce that, God willing and the people consenting, our own Kate Maxwell will be ordained to the priesthood on Saturday, June 19 at 4 pm at St. Mark’s Cathedral. Watch online here.
Kate has been a devoted and gifted member of St. John’s for many years, serving in many capacities including liturgy, pastoral care, adult formation—in fact, nearly everything except presiding at the Eucharist! Now, thanks to the Spirit’s call, she will do that too. Next year she will continue at St. John in the Wilderness in White Bear Lake as a curate, where they have been and will continue to be very blessed by her presence and ministry.
Because of the pandemic, the in-person service is only open to a close group of family and friends. However, we are all encourage to participate via the livestream, and we can all celebrate with her in spirit. In addition, for any who wish to get Kate a gift, she is requesting contributions toward a yearlong preaching mentorship with Backstory Preaching called Transition & Thrive. You can also express your blessing to her by emailing her at email@example.com.
Please join me wishing Kate joy and blessing in her ministry and vocation!
