Our Deacons' Ordination Anniversary


Today is the anniversary of the ordination of our two deacons, Dn. Michael D'Agostino and Dn. James Orr. Sixteen years ago they were ordained to the diaconate by Archbishop Patrick Flores, and we give thanks to God for their ministry!

ALMIGHTY God, who by thy divine providence hast appointed divers Orders of Ministers in thy Church, and didst inspire thine Apostles to choose into the Order of Deacons the first Martyr Saint Stephen, with others; Mercifully behold these thy servants called to the like Office and Administration: so replenish them with the truth of thy Doctrine, and adorn them with innocency of life, that, both by word and good example, they may faithfully serve thee in this Office, to the glory of thy Name, and the edification of thy Church; through the merits of our Saviour Jesus Christ, who liveth and reigneth with thee and the Holy Ghost, now and for ever. Amen.
