Deacon Robert Collins shared this happy news:

Meet the newest Permanent Deacon for the Diocese of Rockford: Deacon Stu Dobson. Deacon Stu was ordained May 15th, with our only transitional deacon, Deacon Nathan Pacer.

Deacon Stu was part of the class of 2020 but was unable to be ordained with the class because he had COVID on that day. He has now been reunited with his class, as our director put it, as our junior deacon.

Congratulations Deacon Stu!

Congratulations and welcome! Ad multos annos!
