Father Michael Orr,MSJ, who represented us at this consecration in South Carolina says, "The service was well attended, 300 or more - communion took a long time to complete."
"I spoke briefly with the Presiding Bishop, Leonard Riches. He was very charitable and warm."
"The consecration was very dignified and well ordered. The love and respect for clergy was very tangible and, from what I observed, the clergy love and respect the people of God as well."
"It was a blessed experience to see my brothers and sisters worshiping God in the beauty of Holiness, and seeing an African-American consecrated bishop in the church of God."
