Michelle Simmons was ordained to the Sacred Order of Deacons on Saturday, June 22, 2019 at 10 am at St. Johns Cathedral in Denver. Michelle is a St. John the Baptist Episcopal Church in Granby member, and has been in seminary for 2 years in Tennessee. She has 1 more year to finish before ordination into the priesthood.

On the following day, Michelle and her family joined us in Granby for the 9:30 services. Many in our congregation were there to celebrate with her as she continues her faith journey.

Scroll down for pictures of the Ordination, her first service at St. Johns as a Deacon, and the reception afterword.

Deacon Michele’s first service at St. John the Baptist Episcopal Church


Reception for Deacon Michele at St. John the Baptist

The reception was attended by many current and former members of St. Johns, as Michele and her family are members of the parish. We send Michele off to complete her final year of Seminary, then to ordination as a Priest. Go with God’s blessings.
