50 years of service in the diaconate

News from the Association for Episocopal Deacons:
Congratulations to Sister Priscilla Jean Wright of the Community of the Transfiguration, who celebrated 50 years of service in the diaconate on June 18, 2014. Sr. Priscilla is the last living deacon to have entered church service as a deaconess. When the canons changed in 1970, she became a deacon. Sr. Priscilla served the Navajo in Arizona and New Mexico and also served in the Dominican Republic where the Community of the Transfiguration had a ministry.
