Ordination update: 15 new deacons for Youngstown

A newly ordained deacon writes:

The Diocese of Youngstown has 15 new Permanent Deacons. Ordination 9-14-2013. If was a joy-filled day. The sacrament that is ‘mostly’ for others.

I am looking forward to a fulfilling ministry.

Congratulations, brothers, and welcome!  Ad multos annos! 

What role can the deacons' wives have during the ordination rite?
