The Most Rev'd Walter H. Grundorf, Presiding Bishop of the Anglican Province of America, writes, "I instituted Bishop Fincke as Rector on October 16, 2016 at All Saints Church in Prescott, Arizona. It was a happy day for him with Ann and other family there for the occasion and a grand feast afterward. It was not long after that the Bp. Fincke was hospitalized. Pray for the sweet repose of his soul and for the comforting presence of the Holy Spirit for Ann and the family. Rest eternal, grant unto him, O Lord, and let light perpetual shine upon him."
