May 5th was declared “Deacon Ellen Day” by Trinity Cathedral’s Chapter to celebrate the 25th anniversary of the ordination of Ellen Marie Reimer Ross to the diaconate. A needlepoint deacon’s cushion was installed in the cathedral sanctuary.

At a special coffee hour, Ellen was present a bouquet of Gerbera daisies, an engraved hand-blown glass vase and a mini-dalmatic which substituted for the real-size special order green dalmatic ordered for Ellen.

Many words of thanks were said, many gifts of affection were given, much fun and laughter were heard. Most of all, Trinity Cathedral returned to its deacon the gift she has always given them – the gift of love.
