Rev. Katlin McCallisterAt Today’s service, the newly ordained (as in yesterday), Reverend Katlin McCallister was the Celebrant for the first as a Priest.

The house was packed today due to the 70th Birthday Celebration of Mae Palmer who had many of her family and friends in attendance at the service.

Congratulations and Happy Birthday Mae!

During the service, members of Holy Trinity presented Rev. McCallister with a commemorative stole to take with her as she begins her ministry at St. Alban’s Episcopal Church in Tuscon Arizona.

Later in the service, Father John Negrotto also presented Katlin with one of his own stoles that he’d personally used in ministry for over 40 years!

Katlin McCallister was baptized at Holy Trinity Episcopal Church in South River, was a cherub in the Christmas Pagents, a member of the Youth Group and grew up in the Church, learning to love God and his people.  Now we are proud to send her forth to preach the word of God with all our love and best wishes.
