    Bishop High Set to Retirement

    The Rt. Rev. Rayford B. High, Jr., announced his retirement at the annual diocesan clergy conference October 25 at Camp Allen. Bishop High, who will be 70 in April 2011, told the more than 300 clergy gathered that his decision had been difficult and that his 44 years of ministry in the Diocese of Texas held many blessings for both he and his wife Pat. He has served as bishop suffragan for seven years. “Each day I offer thanks to the Lord for calling me into ministry, first as deacon, then priest, and now as bishop. I am deeply humbled by God’s call and God’s continuing strength and presence in my life and ministry.  What a blessing it has been for me, Pat and my family to service Christ and Christ’s Church and people,” Bishop High said.
