The Moravian Church in Labrador hasn’t had an ordained minister on the coast since Reverend Sam Propsom who left a number of years ago.
But that changed on Sunday, February 14th. Glenna Tasedan from Winston-Salem in North Carolina was ordained in the Happy Valley Moravian Church on that day. She and her husband George drove to Happy Valley from the States and arrived on Friday, February 12th.
Bishop Paul Graf who is from a Moravian Church in Sturgeon Bay, Wisconsin came to Labrador to do the Ordination.
Tasedan will serve out of Happy Valley but as far as she knows she will be available to travel to north coast Moravian communities if and when she’s needed. She will also be of support to Lay-leaders and Chapel-servants.
On Labrador memories this afternoon Tasedan will tell us more about her Ordination and what plans she may have in the coming years.
