Celebrating Women in Ministry - Sunday, February 9th

CELEBRATING WOMEN IN MINISTRY - On Sunday, February 9th  we will commemorate the 70th anniversary of the ordination of The Rev. Dr. Florence Li Tim-Oi, the first woman to be ordained priest in the Anglican Communion. The Rev. Dr. Fran Toy, the first Asian American woman to be ordained priest in The Episcopal Church, will preside at the 7:45 am and 10:45 am services. At the 10:00 am adult forum, join seminarian Monica Whitaker for a discussion about women’s ministries in church history and Asian American ministries in The Episcopal Church. We will have a guest presenter from St. James-San Francisco, Carole Jan Lee, who will offer a 10-minute monologue about Li Tim-Oi’s life of faithful ministry, dedication, and bravery. A special offering will be gathered to support the Li Tim-Oi Foundation in assisting Anglican women in the two-thirds world to train for Christian work in their own countries.
