That's FATHER Al Kimmel now - The Pontificator becomes a Priest

Al Kimmel, the former Episcopalian parish priest and "Pontificator" of the blog "Pontifications" was ordained on December 3, 2006. His blog profile reads as follows:

Al Kimel (aka “Pontificator”) was a parish priest in the Episcopal Church for twenty-five years. He has published articles in the Anglican Theological Review, Sewanee Theological Review, Interpretation, Scottish Journal of Theology, Worship, Faith & Philosophy, Pro Ecclesia, and First Things. He has also edited two books: Speaking the Christian God and This is My Name Forever. He began Pontifications in March 2004 as a way to reflect on the meaning of the Church and to invite others to share in these reflections. In June 2005 he entered into full communion with the Catholic Church. On 3 December 2006 he was ordained a priest in the Catholic Church. He is currently serving as the lay Catholic chaplain at Kean University in Union, New Jersey. All unsigned articles on Pontifications are written by Fr Kimel.
