Episcopal Church ordains nine new deacons

From Alabama-

Bishop John McKee Sloan ordained nine new deacons for the Episcopal Diocese of Alabama on Oct. 1 in a service at the Cathedral Church of the Advent in Birmingham.

They are: Dave Lambert, St. Francis Assisi, Indian Springs; Judy Neil, St. Alban's Church, Birmingham; Andrea Peacock, St. James, Alexander City; Jennie Randall, St. Thomas, Huntsville; Bob Serio, Church of the Nativity, Huntsville; Pearl Slay, Trinity, Demopolis; Susan Southwick, Holy Cross, Trussville; John Stewart, St. Matthias, Tuscaloosa; and Charlie Venable, St. Mary's on-the-Highlands, Birmingham.

They make up the fourth class of deacons to be ordained since the permanent diaconate was restored in the diocese in 1999. With Saturday's ordination there are now 36 deacons actively serving parishes in the diocese, 10 retired deacons, and 1 deacon living out of state.
