This past Thursday at the first all-school chapel of the Fall Semester, we celebrated Father Aidan’s 25th anniversary as Chaplain at St. James’ School.
A new stole (bearing the school’s crest), a gift from the school ‒ specially designed by Cliff Chally for the occasion ‒ was presented by Fr. Koh’s wife, Christina. Jeffrey Armour, Esq., of the St. James School Board presented Fr Aidan with a Proclamation from the City of Los Angeles.
And to top it off, Ms. Serena Beeks, the Executive Director of the Episcopal Diocese of Los Angeles Commission on Schools, officially announced that Fr Aidan was named a Canon of the Diocese and presented him with the cross that Bishop Bruno gives to all Canons.
So now the Reverend has become the Reverend Canon and is now properly addressed as Canon Aidan or Canon Koh.
Congratulations Canon Koh! Thank you for 25 years of service as Chaplain of St. James School. May God bless you as you move into the next 25!
