By the grace of Almighty God, your prayers and presence are requested at a celebration of Holy Communion with the Rite of Ordination for Jorge Leone into the Ministry of Word and Sacrament.
The ordination will take place on Saturday, the sixth of May at three o’clock in the afternoon, at St David’s Lutheran Church located at 132 Saint David’s Church Road in West Columbia. The Rev. Herman R. Yoos, bishop of the South Carolina Synod will preside and preach.
Jorge will be serving as pastor of Cristo Rey Lutheran Church in West Columbia, Sagrada Familia Lutheran Church in Columbia, and preaching points in Gaston and Pelion.
A brief gathering with hors d’oeuvres and cake will follow the service at the fellowship hall.
All rostered ministers are invited to process. Red is the color of the day.
Almighty and merciful God, you built your Church on the foundation of the apostles and prophets, and you instituted the office of the holy ministry so that apostolic and prophetic Word might be heard throughout the ages. Grant that this new pastor may minister faithfully in the power of your Spirit; through your Son, Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen
