The Ordination of the Rev. Vinaya Dumpala

On Sunday, May 7th, Vinaya Dumpala was ordained alongside five others at St. James' Cathedral by the Most Rev. Colin Johnson, Archbishop of Toronto, a transitional deacon.

Vinay has been with us for three years, first as a theological student in training and then as a postulant and ordinand as he continued to train for full-time ministry. He was formally presented for ordination by our incumbent, the Rev. Canon Heather McCance and life-long St. Andrew's member Kerri Ann Brown. Over sixty memebrs of St. Andrew's travelled to the cathedral for this wonderful occasion, a testament to how much he is loved and his ministry appreciated by everyone here.

God bless, Rev. Vinay, and congratulations!
