Commissioning Youth In Action and a Thank You to The Rev. Stockton Williams

Saturday morning at Council began with our Daily Devotions and the commissioning of this year’s Youth in Action.

Bishop Lillibridge also called for the Rev. Stockton Williams to thank him for his 12 years of service as the Happening Spiritual Director. “Happening is an active, active ministry in our diocese,” said Lillibridge, as the youth gathered and the Council participants raised their hands as having been on a Happening weekend.

“The Happening movement is special, and it’s because of people like Stockton why it keeps growing,” said Lillibridge. Happening is a spiritual retreat weekend for high schoolers in grades ten through 12.

Williams, who will retire later this year as Rector of St. Peter’s, Kerrville, said, “I’ve been on many retreat teams – Cursillo, Men’s Walk to Emmaus – but the greatest of these is Happening because of the youth. I am so inspired by their love for Jesus. If you ever have a chance to be part of Happening, go! It is the best ever.”

Lillibridge announced that the new Spiritual Director of Happening is the Rev. Michael Koehler.
