A picture paints a thousand words

Wonderful pic, Baby Blue. Since our service leaflet forgot to include the names, do you have the names of all three who were ordained. And all three are Chaplains, right?
Thanks!

I will work on getting those names. I know we had a Monsignor Army Chaplain in the Roman Catholic Church who was in the congregation as well. This particular photo is of a new priest who is serving as a military chaplain in the United States Armed Forces. His family is in Germany and were not able to attend the ordination, but were able to watch live thanks to the great work of Anglican TV yesterday. :)

I hadn't realized that you could serve as a military chaplain BEFORE you were ordained....

I believe that some - I know of at least one - are switching denominations. At the CANA Council there were clergy from other denominations who are exploring coming into the Anglican fold.

I am pleased that ACNA and CANA clergy are ministering to our men and women in the military.

At least in the Episcopal Church, chaplains can't be certified until they are ordained to the priesthood. I was involved in negotiating with another denomination for continued certification of a chaplain who had been ordained to the diaconate for the time until he was ordained as a priest.

Why didn't Minns discuss the recent developments in the Virginia case in his address? I was distressed not to see much in it, except in some footnotes.

Father Daniel,

The three men were already endorsed and ministering as Army chaplains in other denominations. For them to transfer their endorsement and functions as Anglican chaplains they had to be ordained by an Anglican bishop hence this ceremony with two archbishops and nine bishops laying on hands.

So it keeps getting deleted, but who is his bishop? How can this dual citizenship idea really work for anybody but Minns, who seems to be trying to recover from his fatal error of joining a pre-existing Nigerian church and therefore losing the case? Please, BB, help me understand!

Great photo BB! I was seated @15 feet from where the Chaplain was consecrated and the energy was palpable. Thanks too, for your coverage of the council.

(Had to delete my previous comment due to a big dumb spelling error...)
