I think I saw a hint here or there on OC.net, but -- unless I am mistaken -- no obvious congratulations have been put forth.

Thus, I'd like to proclaim Axios! and express my approval at the ordination of Fr. George, formerly known on these boards as cleveland, to the Holy Diaconate on Saturday and the Holy Priesthood on Sunday.

There is a picture circulating around the interwebs, but I don't know if it is meant to be made public. I'll wait for Fr. George to do the posting...

I guess Fr. George is just too shy to allow pictures  Tongue

Or I'm too forgetful.  I've attached 3 photos from my Deaconal ordination (location: Annunciation GO Church, Akron, OH).  For some reason, I don't have any from my ordination to the priesthood on my computer - I'll get some from someone else.

#2 - The laying on of hands.
#3 - My addressing the Bishop (this one comes chronologically before #2)
#5 - The clergy, my wife and daughter with His Eminence.  The count that day: 1 hierarch, 13 priests (maybe 14 - I forget), 3 deacons, plus me.
