Ordination Update: 22 New Deacons for Newark

Deacon Greg Kandra - published on 06/05/16

You can read all about it on the archdiocesan website here:

Oh. Wait. No, you can’t.  Nevermind.

Unfortunately, the archdiocese decided not to include the 22 diaconate ordinations on the main landing page of the website.

However, you can read about the men who were ordained in the archdiocesan newspaper, The Catholic Advocate, here.

One of the new deacons is a familiar name, and FOB (Friend of The Bench), film critic (and recent winner of a Catholic Press Award!) Steven Greydanus.

Congratulations and welcome, brothers! Ad multos annos!
