Ordination Update: 11 New Deacons for Springfield, Illinois


Deacon Greg Kandra - published on 06/25/16

Congratulations and welcome, brothers!

I got to meet these guys when they became lectors two years ago, and I had the privilege of preaching a retreat for them.

(And they celebrated my birthday by surprising me with a Batman cake. It doesn’t get much better than that.)

Ad multos annos!
