Sisters and Brothers,
I’m away on Vacation, however, there is still some good news to share.
Auxiliary Bishop Ordination Update
Excitement is mounting in the Mary Magdalene Community and the ECC as we prepare for the ordination of Rev Denise Donato as Auxiliary Bishop to Bishop Francis Krebs on Friday, Feb 9 at 6:00. Denise is the Pastor of Mary Magdalene Church in Rochester, NY and is a founding member of the ECC. She and her husband, Phil, have three adult children and four grandchildren. 2018 is a big year for Denise and Phil. “Phil and I actually celebrate 40 years of marriage this year! It’s a huge year for us! I celebrate my 60th birthday Feb 7, on Feb 22 I celebrate 15 years as priest. Our oldest son is getting married in April (he’s 38 and never been married). Phil retires on May 1, and we celebrate 40 years of marriage June 17th,” Denise said. And now she’s being ordained a bishop on February 9th!
