The Rev. Katherine Feng with family and friends at her diaconal ordination in January at The Church of Our Saviour in San Gabriel.

On the 12th day of Christmas
It’s a blessing to recall
Twelve celebrating
Eleven at Thanksgiving!
Ten Graces a-bounding
Nine for confirming
Eight father’s unioners
Seven tots a-toiling
Six great Granadians
Five Lambeth friends!
Four priests a-partying
Three mitered angels
Two cuddling canons
And wedging prayers into the Western Wall.

With Kathy, Frannie (hiding), PJ, Dan, Mark, Harriet, Valerie, Meaghan, Walter, and Michelle, but not Lindsay, momentarily absent.
