The service includes the Eucharist and an induction ceremony in which the Bishop, representatives of the congregation, and representatives of the diocesan clergy present symbolic gifts to the new minister. The preacher will be the Rev. Lloyd A. Lewis, Jr., Ph.D., Professor Emeritus of New Testament at Virginia Theological Seminary. 

After the service, you’re invited to the Patterson Terrace for light refreshments and to toast our new Rector.
