WATCH: Deacon and his priest son serve together at a papal Mass

Deacon Greg Kandra - published on 01/19/17

From Rome Reports:

In the Mass for Our Lady of Guadalupe, something unusual took place.Accompanying the the pope around the altar that day were a father and a son.
They are Fr. David Parker, and Deacon David Parker, from Green Bay, Wisconsin. Fr. David had been ordained just a few days before the Mass of Guadalupe as a Legionary of Christ, and his father is also newly ordained… a deacon.
Fr. David called in a few favors and managed to convince the organizers of the Mass to let him and his dad both serve, in what was an indescribable moment for this young priest.
Check out the video above. Congratulations to both father and son. Ad multos annos!
