On April 21, 2018, the Most Rev’d Walter H. Grundorf ordained Mr. Carlton Bridgewater to the diaconate of Christ’s Holy Church at St. Alban’s Cathedral in Oviedo, Florida. Following the celebration of the ordination and the Holy Eucharist as reception was held in Deacon Bridgewater’s honor. The reception provided an opportunity for Dcn. Carlton and his wife Jackie to greet the many members of his family, and also his church family of St. Alban’s, who were in attendance, for all their prayers and support throughout his journey to this momentous occasion. He will serve as a curate at the Cathedral, which is his home parish.
