An invitation arrived in the mail this week. It wasn’t, of course, unexpected. In fact, we’ve had the date for a while now. The arrival of the invitation moves the ordination more solidly into the realm of “this is going to happen.”
I very much wanted to write something insightful here — something which summed up the last six years, something meaningful and inspiring.
But as I contemplate this next step in Evan’s journey all I can really give voice to is a profound sense of gratitude to God. Gratitude for both my sons, for my wife, for the life God has given me, and for love that God has shown me through all of this.
So I’ll leave the invitation here and ask your prayers for us and for Evan as he takes this next important step in his journey of faith and service.

Keeping Evan and the entire Cummings family in prayer during this joyful time of celebration.
Congratulations to Deacon Evan and Cummings Family!
You are so blessed! Our youngest son, Thomas, is studying for the Archdiocese of Philadelphia and is a second College Seminarian, with seven more years of study ahead of him. Our church needs these young men! I will keep you and Evan in my prayers.
Thank you! We shall keep Thomas in our prayers as well.
