Bishop Jonah’s Consecration

I was fortunate to be able to be at St. Seraphim Cathedral for the consecration of Bishop Jonah, our newest bishop. It was a very interesting ceremony, the first consecration of a bishop I’ve seen, and it was really nice to see the cathedral packed with laity and priests. We took Mother Thekla over to get some peel and eat shrimp afterward because, as a monastic, she doesn’t eat meat and the catered food was barbecue. She’s a lot of fun to talk to, and if you’re ever in South Carolina, pop on over to Saints Mary and Martha Monastery and spend some time with them.
