Sunday after the second service, we rehearsed for next week’s visit by Presiding Bishop Katharine. Everyone participated in a walk-through, complete with readings, albeit abbreviated ones (except for the Gospel).
Since there was so much processing to practice, it was quickly decided that we needed a stand-in for the bishop, and Pat stepped into the role with gravitas (and a cardboard mitre left over from Advent).
No word on when she actually took it off…
Father Steve and Stand-in Bishop Pat get their act together.
