Ordination Update: 13 New Deacons for Los Angeles

Deacon Greg Kandra - published on 06/12/16

Congratulations and welcome! Ad multos annos!  Check out the homily of Archbishop Gomez from Saturday’s ordination at Our Lady of the Angels Cathedral:

“The permanent diaconate is a ministry of joy!” Archbishop Gomez said during his ordination homily at the Cathedral this morning. “You are becoming deacons at this time when our world needs a new witness to the reality of God’s mercy. As deacons, you are servants of love — and mercy is love in action. Mercy is the work of love, the true expression of the love that Jesus commands.”
