Happy Anniversary Deacons

Forty two years ago today the Pope issued a motu propio restoring the Permanent Diaconate. These valuable men have been a great resource for the Roman Catholic Church and have enabled her to carry on her mission in the face of a growing shortage of Priests.

Congratulations to my friend Deacon Mickey and our Parish's Deacon Tom. Thank you for your service.

The whole story is here.
