Bishop ordains deacons, priests

A long journey of discernment, study and prayer led five individuals to joyful celebrations with family and friends at Christ Church Cathedral on two Saturdays in June as Bishop Thomas E. Breidenthal ordained them to ministry in the Episcopal Church.

Bishop Breidenthal ordained Carolyn C. Cogar and William Frederick Sangrey to the Sacred Order of Deacons on June 7.
