A wise man arrives from the East!

It’s another deacon blogger.  Welcome!

He’s Protodeacon David Kennedy, whose online biography notes:

I serve in the parish of St. Elias, Brampton, Ontario [Ukrainian Catholic Eparchy of Toronto]. I was ordained deacon in 1978 and raised to the protodiaconate in 1982. I studied at the University of Toronto, BA [philosophy and religious studies] 1975; the University of St. Michael’s College (Toronto), MDiv 1978; ThM 1982; U of T (Faculty of Education) BEd 1985. I teach secondary school [religious studies and philosophy].

His new blog “Diaconate in Christ” gives us Latin-rite deacons a fascinating glimpse into how the other “lung” of the church breathes.  Pay a visit and say hello.  It promises to be an enlightening and engaging place to learn more about our shared vocation.

  1. I met my first “bi-ritual” deacons at the big International Gathering of Deacons in New Orleans in the summer of 1994. One of those two is still “active” — the other has developed some serious health problems. They are both “Armenian-Catholic” and I have learned a great deal about their traditions, their ministry and how it different from us in the Western/ Roman/Latin rite.

    Then, when John Paul II came to Detroit, my wife and I were seated at the Ford Theater right in the middle of a large group of Dearborn Michigan based Chaldean Rite deacons and their wives.

    This new blog by Deacon David — and I have visited it — promises to be a welcomed addition.

    Deacon Greg, thank you for posting this!
