It's wonderful news, Fr. John. Axios!

AMEN!
Will he be Western or Eastern Rite?
Thanks for the photos on the updated "HOLY INCARNATION" site.
Things look like they are coming along nicely.

Matthew,

I don't know where Sbdn Hackney will serve as Deacon, nor where he will serve when ordained as priest. That is a bishop's decision.

I'm glad you like the photos and updates. Might we expect a visit?

I'll have to keep a look out for him the next time I'm up at STOTS. We have a house an hour south of South Canaan. I haven't been able to get away since we've had the baby, but I want to bring Jasper up.
