Fr. Mark Wallace and Fr. Barry Thibodeaux's Ordination

More good news for the Western Rite: this weekend, it will have two new priests.

Both Mark Wallace of St. Andrew Orthodox Church in Oklahoma City and Barry Thibodeaux of Christ the Savior Orthodox Church in Jacksonville, Texas, left the Charismatic Episcopal Church and spent months without any word of eventual chrismation or ordination. Despite the uncertainty, their congregations held together. Today, I'm happy to pass along this note from (soon-to-be-Fr.) Mark Wallace:
The ordination schedule of former CEC priests, Barry Thibodeaux and Mark Wallace are as follows:

Saturday, Jan. 19 @ 9:00 am - Barry & Mark: Tonsured as Reader and ordained as Subdeacons. Barry will then be made a deacon.
Sunday, Jan. 20 @ 10:00 am - Dcn. Barry becomes Fr. Barry and Sbdn Mark becomes Dcn. Mark.
Monday, Jan. 21 @ 7:00 am (not pm) - Dcn. Mark becomes Fr. Mark.

These will take place at St. George Orthodox Cathedral in Wichita, Kansas. All are invited.
Thanks to him for the exciting news. Axios!
