Ordination to the Holy Order of Deacons

In Deacons, Ordination by Deacon ScottLeave a Comment

Ordination

Bishop Stika ordains me.

Today myself and 22 brothers were ordained as Permanent Deacons for the Diocese of Knoxville by Bishop Richard Stika. In choir was Cardinal Justin Rigali and Abbot Cletus Meagher, O.S.B. from St. Bernard Abbey in Cullman, Al.

I will reflect more about the experience in the coming days, but for now I simply share a photo of my ordination, the program for the Mass and the video that was streamed of the entire Mass.

I am humbled by the work God is bringing about in my life. I’m a bit nervous as tomorrow I will assist and preach at three Masses. The journey begins, thanks be to God!
