2. For the Sheep in Exile – Bulletin 2015-06-07 Correction: I worked in haste to get out our last post. A new computer with Wi-Fi problems tended to complicate my effort. As is obvious from this title Bishop Loverde ordains 7 new priests and 1 new deacon, I flubbed on my description of the ordination that took place today. My apologies to all.
