The proclamation that was presented from The Right Reverend Kirk Stevan Smith, Ph.D., Bishop reads: "Be it known to all the faithful that in recognition of devoted service to our Lord and the mission of the Church in the Diocese of Arizona, I today name Daniel Tantimonaco Honorary Canon of Trinity Cathedral and the Diocese of Arizona."
Father Dan received this honorary title in recognition for not only growing St. Paul's, but also for the work he has done on the Episcopal Diocese of Arizona's Standing Committee and in the community of Payson. Going forward, he will wear a cassock trimmed in purple piping and a purple band cincture. His title also becomes The Reverend Canon Daniel Tantimonaco.
