Before an ample crowd of members, guests and well-wishers, The Rev. Scott Walker was installed as Rector of St. Agnes Episcopal Church in Sebring Saturday afternoon, Oct. 12. An important event in the life of a church is the calling of new leadership. This was the case for St. Agnes. Leading the Celebration of New Ministry was the Rt. Rev. Greg Brewer, Bishop of the Diocese of Central Florida.
The service involved a great deal of symbolic liturgy for which the Episcopal Church is noted. A “Litany for Ordinations” with congregational responses was chanted, and a total of five hymns were sung. Three readings from scripture and a psalm highlighted the early part of the service. Joanna Wright read the first lesson and a second lesson was read by David Onsted. Bishop Brewer read the Gospel lesson and delivered the sermon, urging support for Father Walker.
