My church is losing a deacon, he will be ordained in the Priesthood on 6-30-06.
"Involvement in parish was important. One parish, Our Lady of Lourdes, in Bethesda, Maryland, in the Washington Archdiocese, has three men being ordained this year: Avelino Gonzalez, 41; Andrew Royals, 27; and Greg Shaffer, 34."
They must have a solid priest in that parish. Monsignor Thomas Wells of that parish has a few articles at domestic-church.com
What a heartening piece of news.
There are many voices crying in the desert.
This news has made my day.
