What wonderful news!
Please join me in giving thanks for Catherine Dawkins as she prepares to be ordained to the priesthood Sunday at St. Christopher's Cathedral in Bahrain by the bishop of the Anglican Diocese of Cyprus and the Gulf. She had completed her seminary coursework in England before serving as a chaplain and working in a medical facility in Yemen. She and her husband, also a priest, will be based in Dubai.
Keep her in your prayers if you think of it. It is never easy to be one of the first, and ordination of women to the priesthood is still very controversial there. May God give her joy as she responds to that call!
