Atlanta's new deacons

The Georgia Bulletin offered a preview of the rite (but as yet hasn’t posted online a followup.)  Congratulations and welcome, brothers!  Ad multos annos!

  1. Congratulations to all sixteen of you! Many blessings. AND, I am looking forward to 2013 when my friend Mark Friedlein will join you!

  2. Just out of curiosity, why are they wearing their stoles in that fashion rather than bound at the side? Is that typical?
