We are delighted to share the announcement that our theological student Paige has received official approval to move to the next stage of the process toward ordination, which is that she has moved from being a postulant to being an ordinand.  Her email to the clergy and wardens is below.  
Grace and peace,

My dear friends,

It is with a full heart that I share with you that I am now an Ordinand in the Diocese of Toronto. I have received concurrence to be ordained to the Sacred Order of Deacon. The ordination will take place at St. James Cathedral on the Fourth Sunday of Easter, April 30 at 4:00 pm. 
I am so deeply grateful for the support and love that I have received from each of you and from the entire St. John’s community. It has been one of the most blessed times in my life to be with you and to learn from you. Thank you!
Your prayers have helped to sustain me over this past year. Please continue to pray for me during the coming months of preparation. There is much work to do.
I give thanks to God for all of you!
