“Our call is truly to service of God’s people, and our presence on the altar represents the service of the whole parish community. We have one foot on the altar and one in the pew…We [deacons] have this special ability to talk about the Gospel from the view of parents, husbands, managers, home-buyers and workers out in the community. It’s humbling and it’s a privilege.”
– James O’Rourke, set to be ordained a deacon this Saturday.
