The Ordination of Mary Russell Barnett

The Rev. Mary Barnett’s ordination to the priesthood, originally planned for March 25 at the church, had to be rescheduled.  But never fear, the ordination is still on, albeit at a different time and place, with Bishop Ian Douglas still presiding.  Mary’s ordination will now take place at a small gathering at The Commons in Meriden on Monday, March 23, at 6:00 PM.

“I am so humbled and honored that my long long journey to ordination has brought me into the arms of the Holy Trinity community,” Mary said. “Surely there is a prescience, as well as a wideness in God’s mercy, in that! I am looking forward to having everyone present in spirit and online!”

To watch the ordination service, just go to Holy Trinity’s Facebook page Monday at 6:00 PM for a live-stream broadcast of the proceedings.  You can view the bulletin here. Mary Russell Barnett ordination
