A new deacon...

This past Saturday I was at the cathedral in Corpus Christi for the ordination of Michael Noble to the diaconate. Deacon Noble is a founding member of the Anglican Use Community of St. Anselm there, and he will be dividing his time between that community and another Catholic parish nearby.

We took this picture just before the Mass began. Shown here, left to right, are Deacon James Orr (Our Lady of the Atonement), me, Fr. Allan Hawkins (St. Mary the Virgin, Arlington), Michael Noble, Fr. Eric Bergman (St. Thomas More, Scranton) and Deacon James Barnett (Our Lady of Walsingham, Houston).
