The following e-mail arrived this evening from Rich Herbst, in the bishop’s office:

Celebrating with an assembly estimated at over 1,300, Auxiliary Bishop Rutilio del Riego ordained three new permanent deacons for the Diocese of San Bernardino on Saturday morning at Sacred Heart Church in Rancho Cucamonga.

Pictured with Bishop del Riego from the left are Deacons Antonio Hernandez, Alfredo Vargas, and Mark Weber.

Congratulations and welcome, brothers!
