Notes from the Senior Warden... It was a privilege for me to recognize and honor Roland Ficken during coffee hour on Sunday, June 27th, for his years of dedication and service as Deacon at Canterbury. Roland began preparation for the Diaconate in 2000 and was ordained in November of 2002. That year, Bishop Parsley assigned Roland to Canterbury Chapel where he served until 2009. This was one year beyond his retirement as the Bishop asked him to continue on in order to support Jon Chalmers and the parish through the 20082009 transitional year. Roland went above and beyond the call of duty as Deacon at Canterbury.
