Charles and I flew from Juneau to Seattle, and Lee Ann picked us up and drove us to Olympia, where we met the wonderful staff of St. Michael Parish, where the ordination was taking place. Charles was the liturgy coordinator and one of the MCs for the ordination.
Charles rehearses with the folks from St. Michael and with (soon to be) Fr. Steve.
Flowers around the altar.
Lee Ann and I visiting at dinner the night before the ordination.
Beautiful metal gate depicting the Crucifixion and the Garden of Eden.
Olympia was a whirlwind of fun, rehearsals, prayer, celebration and most and best of all, seeing Lee Ann!
More adventures to come...stay tuned!
