Ordination update: 20 new deacons for Toledo

Deacon Greg Kandra - published on 09/21/17

Holy Toledo!

A priest friend sent me the image above. The ordination occurred last weekend at Our Lady Queen of the Most Holy Rosary Cathedral, with Bishop Daniel Thomas celebrating.

I hope to get a list of the newly ordained and more details soon. A local report indicates this is the largest class in recent years; it may well be one of the largest deacon classes in the country this year.

Meantime, a local paper has this profile of two of the men.

Congratulations to one and all. Ad multos annos! 

UPDATE: The newly ordained are…

Graham Jimmie McCoy David Mileski Justin Moor Denver J. Mossing Dennis J. Scherger David L. Schiefer Donald L. Siefker Steven L. St. John Steven R. Vogt Fredrick Wuebker Lawrence J. Zachrich
