Good news from the Sisterhood of St John the Divine

From the Epiphany 2011 Eagle comes the announcement of an ordained postulant's admission to the community. Since the ordination of the Revd Canon Sr Constance Joanna "C.J." Gefvert SSJD, St John's Convent has had one religious priest in residence. Now there is to be another: on 4 January, the Revd Debra Johnston, a Lutheran presbyter and thus a "priest in the Church of God" under the terms of the Waterloo Declaration, was admitted as a postulant. She will provide an ecumenical and sacerdotal witness to the community. Please remember Pastor Debra and the Sisters of St John in prayer.
