CANA: Colorado ordination April 13

From the CANA website:

CANA's first priesting for 2008 is scheduled for Sunday, April 13. The Rev'd Alan Crippen II, president of the John Jay Institute, will be made a priest at the 9 o'clock morning worship service at Grace Chruch and St. Stephen's in Colorado Springs, Colorado. Previously this year, there have been three new deacons ordained: Dan Clark and Marge Marcewicz in Wyoming, and Sheri Graham in Texas.

The Rev'd Alan R. Crippen II is founder and president of the John Jay Institute for Faith, Society and Law. Previously Mr. Crippen served for nine years as founding rector of the Witherspoon Fellowship, a leading civic and cultural leadership development program for college-age students based in Washington, D.C. He has two decades of experience in non-profit executive management and college level teaching. His military service includes platoon and battery command as well as various battalion staff operations and planning positions in the U.S. Army Field Artillery. Mr. Crippen's vocational passion is for the formation of young leaders who aspire to public life. He is particularly inspired to prepare them with the contours of a worldview, knowledge, and piety requisite for faithful Christian service in the public square. Mr. Crippen holds degrees from Westminster Theological Seminary (M.A.R.) and Philadelphia Biblical University (B.S.) and is an ordained deacon in the Anglican Communion. He, his wife, Michelle, and their five children make their home in Colorado Springs and worship at Grace Church and St. Stephen's Parish (Anglican-CANA). More information on the congregation may be found at .

CANA's Missionary Bishop Martyn Minns will preside at this ordination service. Information about other ordinations this spring, as well as information about a CANA Vocations Retreat for aspirants/postulants/seminarians, will be forthcoming.
