The story, from Deacon Deacon Martin Serraes, Episcopal Delegate for Permanent Deacons:

Bishop Gerald Barbarito ordained Deacon Michael McDonald (second from left) to the diaconate on Saturday September 12,2020 at St Ignatius Loyola Cathedral.

Why only one?

We merged our program with Miami and they take a class every two years. Deacon McDonald got caught up in the transition.

Well, happy to have him!

Congratulations and welcome, brother! Ad multos annos!
