On September 29, 2022, the Bishop of Brandon ordained Lieutenant Jacob Friesen to the diaconate and the Reverend Barry Nadolny to the priesthood. In attendance at this service was the Rt. Rev’d Nigel Shaw, the Bishop Ordinary of the Canadian Forces, who will become Deacon Jacob’s bishop following his time in the Diocese of Brandon. Pictures of the occasion are below (with a more fulsome selection on the Diocesan Facebook page), and the full video of the service can be found on the Diocesan YouTube page. 

Lieutenant the Reverend Jacob Friesen will serve the Diocese as the Assistant Curate at St. Matthew’s Cathedral, Brandon, and the Reverend Barry Nadolny will continue to serve of St. Paul’s, Dauphin and St. Michael and All Angels, McCreary, but now as the Associate Priest. 

Congratulations, Deacon Jacob and Fr. Barry! May God grant you many years in your new ministries.
