Today marks the 8th anniversary of my ordination as a deacon, along with 22 of my spiritual brothers. It is with great joy that I celebrate this anniversary and all that the Lord has brought into my life over the past eight years. I am so grateful for the many and varied opportunities he’s given me to serve Him and His people.

I share the full video of our ordination Mass, which will begin playing here with Bishop Stika laying his hands on on me, conferring to me the Sacrament of Holy Orders. Thanks be to God for calling me and my fellow ordinands to this blessed and sacred life of service. You’ll find several photos from that day here.
