Ordination update: 7 new deacons for Boston

Deacon Greg Kandra - published on 10/03/17

The Pilot newspaperwrote about them shortly before the ordination:

Cardinal Seán P. O’Malley will ordain seven men as permanent deacons at St. Edith Stein Parish in Brockton on Sept. 30, 2017 at 10 a.m. The four-year journey to the diaconate for these seven men began in September 2013 when they began attending classes two nights a week with their wives. The Deaconate [sic] Formation Program also requires two retreats a year, one with wives and one together as a class, and monthly meetings on Saturdays for special speakers and topics not covered in the curriculum. The program now offers the men the option to complete a master’s degree in theology after ordination with a few additional courses at The Theological Institute for New Evangelization.

Read profiles of the new deacons and see pictures here.

As the Facebook post notes:

The men ordained are Carlos DeSousa (Lowell), Alan Doty (Walpole), Charles Landry (Hanson), Cleyton Moreira (Framingham), Van Vuong Nguyen (Braintree), Elcio dos Santos (Holliston), and Brian Shea (Peabody). 

Congratulations and welcome, brothers! Ad multos annos!
