    In this photo: Deacon Robert Kirk, Deacon Joseph Kennedy, Archbishop Brendan O’Brien, Deacon David Cavalier(back), Deacon Brent McLaren(middle), Deacon Robert Wojcik(front). Deacon Wojcik is my husband, and I am so proud of him and our fellow candidates and spouses. God has truly blessed all of us in this journey to the Diaconate.

  2. The five new deacons portrayed in this photo will be attending the NADD Region 2 Convocation which the Archdiocese of Kingston (Canada) is hosting from August 5-7, 2011. I hope you can join us for this great convocation which includes a dinner cruise and evening prayer at the statue of St. Lawrence situated in the middle of the St. Lawrence River, uniting Canada and the USA. Please visit our website http://www.romancatholic.kingston.on.ca/ for more information on this convocation, our key note speaker and the interesting break out sessions.
