St. Stephen Episcopal Church invites you to a reception to celebrate the ordination of Joyce (Krueger) Atchley as a vocational deacon. The reception will be held on Sunday, Nov. 6, at 12:30 pm at St. Stephen which is located at the corner of Hurburt and 9th Street in Newport. Joyce will receive Holy Orders to the Diaconate on Friday, Nov. 4, during the annual diocesan convention at Valley River Inn, Eugene.
The Diaconate has been revived in the Episcopal Church as a Holy Order. Ordained deacons may serve a parish along with a priest, and are assigned by the bishop. Joyce Atchley has focused her energies on the coast’s homeless, poor and justice concerns.
We hope you stop by to greet Joyce and have a piece of cake!
