Ordination update: 17 new deacons for Toledo

Holy Toledo!

I got the following e-mail this afternoon from Fr. Bill Rose:

Attached is a picture from the Diaconate Ordinations this past Saturday at Rosary Cathedral.   Bishop Leonard Blair ordained 17 men for service to the Diocese of Toledo.

Congratulations, brothers, and welcome!  Ad multos annos!
