A new deacon

What a joyful and blessed event for the Anglican Use community in Scranton, Pennsylvania! Eric Bergman, the future pastor of the St. Thomas More community there, was ordained as a Catholic Deacon on March 24th. His ordination to the Priesthood will take place (God willing) on April 21st, and with that he and his congregation will begin a new and important chapter of their existence in the Catholic Church.

Please pray for Deacon Bergman and his beautiful family, as well as for the faithful laity there. It has been a long path, and sometimes a struggle, as they moved from the Episcopal Church into the fullness of the Catholic faith. May God give many others this same courage and grace.
