Dear Children of God,
It is with a humbled spirit that I announce to you that I have been called to the Sacred Order of Deacon by His Grace, The Right Rev. Michael Beckett, OPI, Presiding Bishop of the Unified Old Catholic Church.
Please pray for me in the coming week and a half as I continue in prayer and service in preparation for the great responsibility of this ministry, that I may be found a worthy servant of the Lord and that my service be for His greater glory and that of His Church.
Know that I am keeping you all in my prayers as Alex and I prepare to make our pilgrimage for the ordination. I look forward to continue my service among you.
In Jesus, Mary, & St. Dominic,
Brother Mark G. Dickson-Patrick, BA, NALP
Subdeacon, Oratory of St. Andrew
