Ordination update: 12 new deacons for Ogdensburg

A retired priest wrote to alert me to this happy news: a dozen new deacons were ordained October 5th for the Diocese of Ogdensburg, NY.

The local newspaper promises to have more next week. Meantime, here are profiles of the newly ordained in North Country Catholic.

Congratulations, brothers, and ad multos annos!
