This Sunday, July 22nd, our Seminarian, Ryan Baker Fones, will be preaching at both the 8:00 am and the 10:00 am services. Ryan has reached the halfway mark in his studies toward his ordination and the entire congregation of St. Thomas is thrilled and proud of his progress.
As he begins his third year of studies in the fall, his focus will begin to shift from the academic and theoretical to the more practical and hands-on. Starting in September, he will be assigned to a different Episcopal Church in Eugene/Springfield to complete his required field education. This program will last one school year.
Ryan continues to be in our prayers as we know we are in his. We look forward to the joyous homecomings at St. Thomas on the occasions when he returns.
