(Sweet Spices and a) Red Egg

At the Parish of St. Mary Magdalene, in the Diocese of Rupert's Land, they read a letter from the bishop this morning.

The bishop announced that the parish officially has a new rector, beginning September 1st.

His name is Preston Parsons.

That's me!

I am very excited to go back home, to be heading into a position suitable to my vocation, and to be near family and good friends.

Thanks be to God!

Congrats! This is very good news. And also what my dad had guessed would be the case in terms of where.

It's always exciting when people are moving back to Winnipeg... even though I don't exactly live here either (for one more year, anyway).

Excellent news!!

And as someone who entered Independent Catholicism through St Mary Magdalene Independent Catholic Church and who is being ordained on her feast day next month, I heartily approve of your new parish. :-)

Congratulations, Preston. This is wonderful, and I'm sure it's very exciting. I think you'll also be pleased as you discover just how much your CPE experience will contribute to your work as a parish priest. Those skills will translate quite well.

The parish of St. Mary Magdalene has got itself a good man and a hell of a priest! I think it shows excellent discernment on their part. Many blessings,
