Congratulations to a long-time participant and commentator for his ORDINATION!

Today in the Diocese of Marquette the local bishop is ordaining transitional deacons including a long-time participant here and frequent commentator, now Rev. Mr. Tim Ferguson!

You know him also at the Official Parodohymnodist of this blog, famous for the lyrics of “Liturgical Blue” and the smash hits of Zuhlio.

I am sure the entire readership will join me in congratulating the diocese, the bishop and Rev. Mr. Ferguson.
