One week away from the "Midas touch"

Just an update on my status, for those who may not be "in the know": I will be ordained to the diaconate by Bishop Don Wimberly of the Diocese of Texas next Saturday, June 23, 2007 at 10:00 a.m. This will take place at Christ Church Cathedral in downtown Houston. I will, however, continue in my present position as Dean of the Faculty at an ecumenical seminary.

Mazeltov, Dan

Have you considered having your ordination taped? You could post a video feed of it here at 3rd Mil.

No, that thought never occurred to me, nor, believe it or not, does it appeal to me. :)

Thanks for your well-wishes.

Thanks, Brett. I suspect that I'll need all the prayer I can get!

Congrats Dr. Dan! I lit a candle for you this weekend in the Holy House of our Lady of Walsingham in the SSC chapel before St. John Vienney and in the Shrine Holy House itself before our Lady who interecedes for both you and me at this time.

I hope you realize how much that means to me, Jeff. Thank you, and God's richest blessings on your upcoming ordination. My prayers are with you and your family.
