God willing and the people of God consenting, the Right Reverend Arthur B. Williams, Jr., Assisting Bishop, Diocese of Ohio, will ordain Elizabeth Frank to the Sacred Order of Priests in Christ's One Holy Catholic and Apostolic Church.
Everyone is invited to join us on Friday, December 6, 2013 at 7:00pm at New Life as Beth Frank is ordained to the priesthood and becomes our Priest-in-Charge! Clergy attendees should wear white stoles. A reception will follow the service.
Deacon Beth is being ordained to the priesthood on December 6th. Coincidentally, that date is also St. Nicholas Day, the day we celebrate Nicholas of Myra, the 4th century bishop and saint.
To celebrate both St. Nicholas and Deacon Beth's ordination, New Life will be having a "Flat St. Nicholas" competition. The rules are simple. Start with the drawing of St. Nicholas that can be picked up at church, or downloaded below.
- Color and decorate your Flat St. Nicholas. Be creative!
