Vestry Approves Ordination to the Priesthood

St. Michael's vestry has approved my application for ordination to the Priesthood! ¡Gracias a Dios! Next step, approval of the Diocesan Commission on Ministry, then approval by the Standing Committee. Things are a moving!

Teresa and I are leaving Berkeley July 22rd and will arrive in Nampa, Idaho July 23. The adventure continues.

The Lexington Kentucky opportunity did not work out, or others I applied for. However, a ministry to Latino community opened up in Nampa, so that is why I'm heading there. Quite excited about it. Now to finish my Spanish/English sermon I will preach this Sunday at Holy Trinity/La Santísima Trinidad. Last Sunday there. Good-byes will be teary. I will miss those dear folk.

Quick Look Over the Last 8 Months

My, My, it has been 8 months since I last blogged! Been really busy. I've been working on my Spanish. If you are on facebook, you can check out my facebook page. My statuses are bilingual.

I've been having an amazing and transformative time ministering with the good, faithful folks at Holy Trinity/La Santísima Trinidad, Richmond, CA. Seminary classes of course, keep me really busy.

Today I got a comment from a Jim Sheehan about a post from 8 months ago. Wow.

Tomorrow I interview for a position in the Diocese of Lexington, KY. That is a whole story in itself but no time to explain further. Any of you prayers out there who feel lead, please pray for me and the other seminarians looking for new ministries. And pray for Canon Sam McDonald who will be interviewing five of us tomorrow. It will be a long day for him. I am confident that God is working in this, so I feel relatively calm.
