H. M. The King has decided to award his gold medal in the 8th size in the Order of Seraphim ribbon to the Reverend, Court Chaplain and Rector of the Royal Court Parish Michael Bjerkhagen, for meritorious efforts as a pastor in the Court Parish.
- I am both happy and honored. The position as a reverend in the Court Parish is a varied, stimulating and fun assignment, says Michael Bjerkhagen, who, in addition to his role as vicar and Court Chaplain, conducts doctoral studies in church history at Åbo Akademi University in Finland.
The medal will be presented personally by His Majesty the King in the presence of Her Majesty the Queen at a medal ceremony at the Royal Palace.
