New Ministry: Canon Liturgist

Bishop Michael is pleased to announce that the Rev. Canon Raggs Ragan is stepping into the newly created position of Canon Liturgist.
The Canon Liturgist responsibilities are:

  1. Available to plan and organize special liturgies for the Bishop and for diocesan functions.
  2. Available to lay and ordained members of the Diocese for specific and general questions, information, and brainstorming about liturgy.
  3. Ex officio member of the Commission for Liturgy and Music.
  4. Available to consult with clergy/parishes about larger liturgical development and planning for agreed consulting fees. 

Raggs most recently served as Canon for Spiritual Formation at Trinity Cathedral, Portland, retiring in September 2017. She has helped a number of people with ordinations and celebrations of new ministry, as well as answering questions (and teaching classes) about such things as Sunday celebrations and funerals and weddings and Holy Week observances. Her joy is using her skill and knowledge to assist people in bringing their vision to life within the scope of our beautiful tradition.
