Members of the Episcopal Asiamerica Ministries’ Korean Convocation paused on June 4 during their four-day meeting in Los Angeles to attend the ordination of Yein Esther Kim, daughter of Archbishop Paul Keun San Kim, Primate of Korea.
Bishop Bruno ordained Esther Kim a deacon as her father participated in the service, also attended by Bishops Suffragan Diane Jardine Bruce and Mary D. Glasspool and a number of clergy of the Diocese of Los Angeles.
Hosted by Bishop Bruce, the Korean ministry representatives came from as far away as Virginia, Vancouver, and Korea. In addition to meetings and discussion, they took several field trips to view ministry in action, notably to Good Samaritan Hospital in Los Angeles to witness Korean chaplain interns at work there in a program started in 2012 as the result of a conversation between Archbishop Kim and Bishop Bruce.
