Posted on in Saints Are Us by The Rev. David Marshall
This is a special “Saints Are Us” — last week the Order of the Community of the Paraclete held its Annual Council/Board Meeting at St. Dunstan’s. From our Seattle Chapter, St. Stephen’s Priory, we accepted one new Associate and one new Friend. An Associate is someone who has offered support and care to the Community and its members. We named Fr. David, and he accepted. Bishop Nedi Rivera read the letter at Holy Eucharist on that Friday afternoon. It is an honor to have him with us in this capacity. We also received one Friend in the Seattle area; this is someone who is beginning the process of formation working towards becoming a vowed member of the Order.
Our chapter in Yakima, Spirit-in-Life, named four new Associates (two among the clergy) and four new Friends. Join with us in giving thanks for these wonderful gifts from God.
Fr. David has been a caring brother to the Order and welcomed us into ministry with him.
See you next week
