Installation of the Vicar
The Rev. Phillip A. Jackson will be installed as vicar of Trinity Wall Street.
During the service, called A Celebration of New Ministry, Fr. Jackson will be presented with symbols of his office, including bread and wine and a basin and towel to commemorate Jesus’s washing of the disciples’ feet.
The Rt. Rev. Claude Payne, former Bishop of the Diocese of Texas, will preach. Bishop Payne ordained Fr. Jackson to the priesthood and has been a spiritual mentor to him for many years. Fr. Jackson was ordained on the Feast of the Nativity of St. John the Baptist, twenty years ago. Elements of the feast day, which falls on June 24, are incorporated into this service.
