Ordination Update: 11 new deacons for Evansville

Deacon Greg Kandra - published on 08/03/13

A priest reader dropped me the following note:

I know you often like to report deacon ordinations.  Today, Bishop Charles Thompson ordained 11 men for the Diocese of Evansville, Indiana.  They are good and holy men. Peace!

A visit to the diocese’s web page revealed the Twitter feed for the newspaper, The Message, and these great new pictures of the freshly ordained deacons and their happy bishop. Below, a great shot of the cathedral, with some 700 people in attendance for this happy event. The men’s names and assignments are posted here.

Congratulations, brothers, and welcome!  Ad multos annos!
