Ordination to the Diaconate

In just three weeks I will be ordained in the The Diocese of Atlanta!

Almost 10 years ago I heard a call to become an Episcopal priest. Since then I have been praying, discerning, studying, and preparing and now on December 19, 2020 at 2:00pm Eastern I will be ordained to the transitional diaconate at the Cathedral of St. Philip in Atlanta. After working for a few months as a deacon, God willing and the people consenting, I will be ordained as priest after I graduate from seminary in May. You can join in the service online here: https://www.episcopalatlanta.org/event/ordination-to-the-transitional-diaconate-livestream-dec-19/.

I hope you will continue to keep me in your prayers as I continue to discern how God is calling me to serve the Church and the world. Thanks for your love and support!

¡En menos de un mes voy a ser ordenado en la Diócesis de Atlanta!

Hace casi 10 años que comencé a escuchar un llamado a ser sacerdote episcopal. Desde entonces he estado orando, discerniendo, estudiando y preparándome y ahora, el 19 de diciembre de 2020 a las 2:00 pm hora del Este, voy a ser ordenado al diaconado de transición en la Catedral de San Felipe en Atlanta. Después de trabajar unos meses como diácono, si Dios quiere y la gente consiente, voy a ordenado sacerdote después de graduarme del seminario en mayo.Se publicará una invitación formal, pero puede unirse al servicio en línea aquí: https://www.episcopalatlanta.org/event/ordination-to-the-transitional-diaconate-livestream-dec-19/.

Espero que continúen manteniéndome en sus oraciones mientras continúo discerniendo cómo Dios me está llamando a servir a la Iglesia y al mundo. Gracias por su amor y apoyo!
