Details:

Twenty-one men will be ordained permanent deacons by Archbishop Charles J. Chaput for the Archdiocese of Philadelphia on Saturday, June 6 at 10 a.m. at the Cathedral Basilica of SS. Peter and Paul, Philadelphia. All the faithful are invited to attend the ordination Mass and to pray for the men as they become ordained clergy in the archdiocese.

The link includes biographies of the deacon candidates—a list which includes a pizza maker, a consultant at IBM, a retired cop, an attorney and a backhoe operator.

I hope to post pictures and more after the happy event.

Praying for one and all!
