The Priestly Ordination of Bob Scott
Friday, February 23, 2018, 7:00 PM - 9:00 PM
On February 23, Bob Scott and two other transitional deacons will be ordained priests at St. John’s Church. It has been great to have Bob here at St. John’s these past couple of years, first as an intern during his training period preparing for ordained ministry, and since last summer, following his ordination as a deacon.
Bob still looks forward to serving in Oklahoma as a bi-vocational priest, splitting his time between his secular job and his service in a congregation. After Bob’s ordination, Bishop Konieczny has asked St. John’s to continue to form Bob for ministry for a season, until he can be placed with a congregation in need of his sacramental and pastoral leadership. This will give Bob a chance to celebrate the Eucharist and perform other ministries he could not perform prior to his ordination as a priest, before he assumes additional responsibilities of congregational leadership.The precise timeline remains uncertain, but we look forward to having Bob serve with us as an assisting priest until he is appointed to serve elsewhere.
We will continue to see Bob regularly on Sunday mornings, and he’ll assist with some pastoral ministries during the week. Please plan to attend the ordination, an important event in Bob’s life, and in our church’s life as well.
