On a Mission with God
Fr. Nathan Baxter
Next Saturday, June 2nd- Francis Capitanio, member of All Saints is being ordained as a transitional deacon at the Cathedral. Please pray for Francis as the day approaches. This week, we include a brief history of Francis’s journey that has brought him to this moment:
Francis Capitanio grew up in Framingham, MA and eventually found his way to Cape Cod, where he worked for ten years as a fisheries biologist for NOAA and as a novelist. He came to know the Lord in his early twenties, in the midst of all that, and joined a believing community in the Vineyard Christian Fellowship on Cape Cod, participating in two church plants and working to establish house churches in the area. He eventually felt drawn to the Anglican Church and left his job and life on the Cape to pursue a career in full-time church work and ministry as Bishop Bill Murdoch’s assistant in the Anglican Diocese in New England. Over the past three years he has found a passion for healing prayer and deliverance, and went through a two year training process at Christian Healing Ministries in Jacksonville, FL, where he was able to work with Judith McNutt in healing conferences in Florida, Georgia, and New England. He is also a team member for Isaiah 40 Ministries, an inner healing ministry based in Montreal, Canada. On the side, he continues to practice writing and painting when he can. Francis will continue to serve at All Saints Anglican Cathedral as deacon while he completes further training in preparation for the priesthood.
