TJ Humphrey Will Be Ordained to Priesthood June 22
In the Diocese of Milwaukee, ordination certificates for both priests and deacons are prepared much as they have been for many years — the certificate is prepared by a calligrapher, then wax is heated and the Bishop's official seal is affixed with the episcopal ring. This time-honored practice took place once again at Nicholson House yesterday to ready TJ Humphrey's certificate for Saturday.
On Saturday, June 22, at 10 a.m., the Rt. Rev. Steven Andrew Miller will ordain Tyler Jason (TJ) Humphrey to the Sacred Order of Priests at St. Paul's Episcopal Church in Beloit, Wisconsin. A reception will follow. All members of the diocese are invited to attend the ordination service.

TJ Humphrey from Nashotah House was among a group of 56 Episcopal seminarians selected to attend this year’s Preaching Excellence Program at the Diocese of Virginia’s Roslyn Retreat Center in Richmond, VA. The week-long intensive program to hone preaching skills was led by a Faculty that included Bishop Katharine Jefferts Schori, former Presiding Bishop of the Episcopal Church, Bishop Neil Alexander, Dean of The University of the South School of Theology (“Sewanee”), Bishop Chip Stokes of New Jersey, Professor Carolyn Sharp of Yale Divinity School, and a select group of seasoned parish rectors. The event is held annually in spring under the umbrella of the Episcopal Preaching Foundation (www.preachingfoundation.org) whose mission is to encourage excellence in preaching throughout the Episcopal Church.
