This evening, I celebrated the 6:00 p.m. Mass at Holy Name Church in Cedar Lake for the anniversaries of ordination for the deacons of our diocese. At the Mass, I also celebrate the Rite of Ministry of Lector for nine candidates who are presently studying for the diaconate.
We would be in a real lurch if we did not have our many deacons serving in various ministries throughout our diocese. Thank you, guys, for all that you do!
Also, I would be remiss if I did not remind you all, as if you need any reminder, about the horrific happenings eighteen years ago.
