Details from The Catholic Commentator:

Bishop Robert W. Muench and a large crowd at St. Joseph Cathedral in Baton Rouge welcomed seven new permanent deacons during the Rite of Ordination of Deacons on June 10. Bishop Muench ordained Deacon Stephen Brunet, Deacon William Corbett, Deacon Kirk Duplantis, Deacon George Hooper, Deacon Tim Messenger, Deacon Gary Mooney and Deacon Minos Ponville Jr.In his homily, Bishop Muench said the morning was one of a “spirit of joy, excitement and enthusiasm.”“All deacons are marked with an irremovable imprint, configuring them to Christ, the servant,” the bishop said. “You, our deacons, and the diaconal community, who exercise your ministry with diligent commitment, are the source of much admiration and inspiration.”
