One of the newly ordained dropped me a line today:

Saturday, April 20, Bishop John R. Gaydos ordained 18 men as permanent deacons for the Jefferson City [Missouri] Diocese. It’s the largest class in our history.

Congratulations, and welcome!  Ad multos annos!  

And how about a shout-out for the wives, too?  I love to post pictures of them :-)
