They ordained five new deacons for the Diocese of Lafayette-in-Indiana last weekend:
Deacon John Etter
Deacon Paul Lunsford
Deacon Mike Mescall
Deacon Jim Rush
Deacon Mark Schipper
Deacon Bill Reid, the Vocations Coordinator, sent along that happy news along with the short video below, which just made me smile (and blink back a tear or two). Read more about the ordination in the diocesan newspaper.
Congratulations, brothers, and welcome! Ad multos annos!
