Sunday Snapshot: The Ordination of Deacon Daniel Kirk this Past Theophany

Adoration of Cross!

OrthodoxNorthwest would like to wish Many Years to Fr Deacon Daniel Kirk of Holy Trinity Parish in Butte, Montana on his Ordination to the Diaconate!  This is a belated wish as he was Ordained on Theophany 2014.  I noted this in a post from Facebook after the fact.

“On the Eve of Theophany, Saturday, January 18th, at the Saint Steven’s Serbian Orthodox Cathedral in Alhambra, California, His Grace, Bishop Maxim, during the Divine Liturgy, ordained to the Diaconate, Reader Daniel Kirk of Butte, Montana. Also concelebrating the Diving Liturgy were V. Rev. Nicholas Ceko, Rev. Norman Kosanovich, and Rev. Russell Radoicic of the Holy Trinity Church in Butte, Montana. Following the Divine Liturgy and the ordination of Deacon Daniel, His Grace, the Clergy, and newly ordained Deacon Daniel together with the faithful processed outside for the Blessing of the Water. Following the service a small celebratory luncheon was held for Deacon Daniel Kirk, his wife Anne, and their daughter Phoebe. Deacon Daniel and his family will return to Butte, Montana where he will be the parish Deacon at the Holy Trinity Church.” From Western American Diocese of the Serbian Orthodox Church in North and South America FB page.  Please visit the site to enjoy more of the photos from the Ordination and the Blessing of the Water!

    Ironically we just walked past Anne’s old house today and were just talking about the Kirk’s and wondered how they were doing! We knew of the ordination…but your timing is something. Hi Anne, Fr. Daniel and Phoebe!!
