And there’s one more on the way!

I received this email from Deacon Russ Wertenberg:

10 of us were scheduled to be ordained.  COVID has delayed one, but he is scheduled for August 13.  So in total there will be 10 ordained as permanent deacons in 2022.

Of the picture, he notes:

The two in dark sunglasses are Deacon Mike Ghiorso (Director of Deacons) and Deacon Fred Totah (Director of Deacon Formation).

The guy with the crosier, of course, is San Francisco’s Archbishop Salvatore Cordileone.

The ordination was celebrated on May 28 at St. Mary’s Cathedral.

You can read about the new deacons and see pictures at this link. 

Congratulations, brothers, and welcome! Ad multos annos!
