Fr. Deacon Peter Gilstrap is to be ordained Sunday, October 18 at Holy Apostle James church. Metropolitan Demetrius and Fr. John Somers will be in attendance to serve. We will serve Saturday in the evening (10/17/20), and Sunday morning (10/18/20), when the ordination will take place during the Liturgy. There will be a large community meal on Sunday after liturgy when we will fellowship together in celebration of Father Peter’s ordination. Additionally, there will be Sunday evening services (10/18/20) and a Monday morning Liturgy with Fr. Peter and Fr. John (10/19/20). Times for the above services are forthcoming.
