The Priest addresses the congregation.
Brothers and sisters in Christ, we are all baptized by the one Spirit into one body, and given gifts for a variety of ministries for the common good and the edification of the Church. We are here to commission William O’Connell, in the Name of God and of this parish to a special ministry to which he has been called.
The Priest The candidate may now be presented.
The Presenters Mother Trula, we present to you William to be commissioned as the verger of St. Paul’s.
The Priest The tradition of the Church requires all persons appointed as verger to bind themselves to a faithful performance of their duties by making a solemn declaration. Are you prepared to do so now?
The Candidate I am.
