On December 6th (the Feast of St. Nicholas of Myra), the Bishop ordained the Rev’d Jacob Friesen to the sacred order of Priest. Participating alongside clergy from around the Diocese was the Rt. Rev’d Nigel Shaw, the Bishop Ordinary to the Canadian Armed Forces; and Lieutenant-Colonel the Reverend Marc Torchinsky, Canon Recruiter for the Anglican Military Ordinariate, who preached the sermon. In addition to these clergy, chaplains from Canadian Forces Base Shilo were in attendance to support Fr. Jacob, who will, God willing, be military chaplain following his time in the Diocese.

Below are some photos of the occasion. You can find more on the Diocesan Facebook page in due course!
