The Catholic Miscellany has posted this slide show below on its Facebook page, spotlighting the diaconate ordination for the diocese on February 11. Details of the ordination Mass are yet to come. But the newspaper gave a preview a couple weeks back, noting that Bishop Robert E. Guglielmone would be ordaining the men at Immaculate Conception Church:

The candidates come to the vocation from a wide variety of professions including engineers, scientists, first responders and teachers. Another 34 men are in formation, with ordinations scheduled for 2019 and 2021, said Deacon André Guillet, director of the Permanent Diaconate. They also have another four men who have applied and others who have expressed an interest in formation.
