Pictures from a Graduation

This is a picture outside Abbey Church just after Graduation Mass




Processing in with the Candle (that is me on the right and Susan on the left)
The only person in front of us was the Crucifer John Hopewell a Seminarian friend
Behind us was a very very long line of priests, deacons an Archabbot and a Bishop




My kids waiting to watch me receive my diploma
I am so proud of the fact that there isn't one MP3 player
or Gameboy in sight.






I'm smiling because I looked inside the folder and know that my diploma is official, signed off on and everything who wouldn't be happy. A few seconds after this picture was when we walked through the hallway lined by our professors.

Perpetua (Diane on the left) and Thekla (me on the right) with Deacon John in the middle. He had these Icons painted for us as graduation gifts. So much more meaningful because of the special meaning of the names themselves. But that is another story for another day.
