Ordination Extra Ordinem!
Abstract: Ordination, installation, great preaching, and a very fine party.
Pr. Dawn Roginski was ordained extra ordinem at St. Francis (SF) on June 16. Pr. Ruth Frost was celebrant; Bishop Paul Egertson (retired) and Pr. Dan Solberg, Dean of the San Francisco Conference conducted the rite of ordination; Pr. Donna Simon preached. Pr Roginski was installed as pastor of parish programs at St. Francis on June 17 (Pr. Erik Christensen preaching). One petition among the prayers of the people at the installation was simply "Gracious God, WOW!"
A gala celebration in honor of Pr. Roginski and LLGM/ECP visionaries Greg Egertson and Jeff Johnson was held on the evening of June 16.
There was surprisingly little gossip, but we hear that as the clergy were vesting for the ordination, Pr. Solberg lamented the absence of the phrase "Top of All Tops" from the ordination rite. We also learned that in Atlanta's Five Points neighborhood, Pr. Christensen's street name was "Baby Blue Priest."
Bishop David G. Mullen did not attend either the ordination or the gala.
