Mary Haggerty Ordination
Congratulations to the Rev. Mary Haggerty, the newest priest in the Diocese of Missouri.
Mary was ordained into the priesthood in small, socially distanced service on Saturday, July 11 at St. Barnabas Episcopal Church in Florissant. The service was led by the Rt. Rev. Deon K. Johnson, Eleventh Bishop of the Diocese of Missouri.
Approximately 25 people (including clergy) attended the service in-person. Dozens more watched a livestream of the sacramental worship service on Facebook and the diocesan website.
After the service, family and friends attending the service enjoyed a celebratory lunch and fellowship on the lawn of St. Barnabas. Mary will begin her service as the priest-in-charge at St. Barnabas on July 15.
