Fr. Matthew Thurman graduating from Holy Cross
Although he made the announcement some time ago, I've been derelict in keeping tabs on my friend's progress: Fr. Matthew Thurman has recently graduated from Holy Cross
and has been assigned
to serve St. Columba's Orthodox Church
in Denver. The parish serves the Western Rite Liturgy of St. Tikhon under the Antiochian Western Rite Vicariate
. I know from our previous discussions that serving the Western Rite was his heart's desire: Deo gratias
that it was granted.
And now, to indulge my irrepressibly mischievious side, I give you -- this (because I can't resist). To be sung to the tune of the old Oreo commercial jingle:
Who's that priest with the Holy Cross diploma,
Looking more Hellenic than he did in Oklahoma?
It's hard to hide your Western side, Fr. Thurman,
At St. Columba's!
(Hanging my head in shame.)
Fr. Thurman, my deepest heartfelt congratulations.
