The Ordination of Ms. Stephanie Donaldson

Bishop Townshend announces that Ms. Stephanie Donaldson will be called to the Diaconate at a service of Ordination to be held on Tuesday, November 30th, the Feast of St. Andrew at 7pm at the Cathedral Church of St. Paul.

Stephanie has become an integral part of our St. James family, and we are so blessed to have her as part of our leadership team! We keep her in our prayers as she celebrates this special day, and as she continues to serve God’s church in ordained ministry after the service on November 30th.
Coming Together to watch Stephanie's Ordination
Stephanie will be ordained on Tuesday, November 30, 2021 at 7pm. Due to COVID-19 restrictions, attendance in-person at St. Paul's Cathedral will be by invitation only. However, this special service of ordination will be live-streamed so that everyone can watch. 

We will be hosting a socially distanced watch party on the big screens in the Nave at St. James so that our parish family can come together as one to celebrate Stephanie's ordination to the Diaconate.

The ordination service begins at 7pm on Tuesday, November 30th. If you wish to join the parish to watch and celebrate Stephanie's ordination from the Nave at St. James, please register with Karen Haslam at 519-273-5398.


As Stephanie prepares for ordination, please keep her in your thoughts and prayers. Make sure to congratulate her the next time you see her!

Take care and God bless,
Kyle Gascho
