The Rev. Kate Heichler, Christ Church's Assistant Rector, will be ordained to the priesthood in the Episcopal Church by the Right Reverend Wilfrido Ramos-Orench Saturday, Feb. 7th at 11 a.m.

The Ordination will take place in Bethany, at Christ Church and will be a rich liturgy with music ranging from organ to banjo (and even a bagpipe). The preacher will be the Very Rev. Dr. Kenneth Swanson, Dean of the Episcopal Cathedral in Nanhville, Tenn. This is an important occasion for the parish as Ms. Heichler is the first clergy assistant in the parish's 205 year history. The last ordination at the church was in 1910. The church is located on Route 63.
