Diaconate Anniversary

Seven years ago today, the Feast of St. Katharine Drexel, I was ordained a transitional deacon for the Diocese of Birmingham. Our Bishop Emeritus, David E. Foley, D.D., ordained me in my home parish – Corpus Christi – in Portsmouth, NH.

March 3, 2007 was a Lenten Saturday, hence the purple vestments.

Please join me in saying a prayer of thanksgiving to God for this great grace!

The word “deacon” means “servant”, and every priest must remember that that is how he started out: first and foremost as one called to serve. I am very much a work-in-progress and, like all ordained ministers, count on your prayers! Thank you to all!
