From the vault: “Letter to a new deacon”

Deacon Greg Kandra - published on 05/28/15

It’s ordination season, so this seems a good time to re-post this gem, which came from Redemptorist Fr. John McKenna two years ago.

It strikes me as being just as timely and apt now as it was then.

Take a look. Share it with a new deacon you know. Or even an old one.
