You are Invited to the Ordination Celebration
June 13 @ 11:00 am - 2:00 pm
This is a very big week for everyone in the Episcopal Diocese of Missouri. Health is first when it comes to the ordination of the Episcopal Diocese of Missouri’s 11th bishop with only a handful of people attending the service in-person at Christ Church Cathedral. But the Diocese will be broadcasting the service and wants everyone to watch it online, as Saturday’s ordination of the Rev. Deon Kevin Johnson will make history on several levels:
-He will be our first black bishop.
-He will be our first openly gay bishop.
-He will be our first immigrant bishop.
-He will be the youngest bishop currently serving in the Episcopal Church.
