Episcopal visit

This past Sunday, we were blessed to have our bishop MARK visit Holy Cross. He performed the Hierarchical Divine Liturgy, which is much more elaborate than a standard liturgy. In the photo he is inducting Michael Cook, another former LCMS pastor, into the Order of St. Ignatius. Michael and his wife Mary just had a baby a few weeks ago; the baptism is set for this coming Sunday. Many years, Sayedna MARK...and many years, Michael!

(This photo also gives a glimpse of one part of our nave.)

What is the Order of St. Ignatius?

Fr. Gregory Hogg said...

The Order is a charitable group in the Antiochian Archdiocese that's active in serving the Archdiocese. They support our camps, they underwrite the expenses of poorer and/or mission priests to go to conferences, and the OCF college conferences, to name a few. We are blessed to have them.
