Ordination Update: 8 New Deacons in Baton Rouge

Deacon Greg Kandra - published on 06/10/13

A priest in Louisiana writes:

Knowing how you like to publicize permanent deacons’ ordinations around the country, know that eight were ordained in the Catholic Diocese of Baton Rouge at their St. Joseph Cathedral this past Saturday, June 8. Good men, all of them. And I’m not saying that just because two of ‘em are from my Cathedral Parish!

According to the caption on Facebook:

The new permanent deacons of the Diocese of Baton Rouge just after their ordination (L-R, Stephen Ourso, David Dawson, Mike Thompson, Louis McGinnis, Bishop Robert Muench, Tommy Benoit, Mark Berard, Leon Murphy, and Chauvin Wilkinson; photo courtesy John Ballance) — with Stephen OursoDavid DawsonJohn Louis McGinnis Jr.Robert William MuenchMark Berard and Chauvin Wilkinson at St. Joseph Cathedral.

Is that a happy-looking bishop, or what?

Congratulations, brothers!  Ad multos annos!
