Meet the candidates

Deacon Greg Kandra - published on 09/14/15

The following picture popped up on my social media feeds this morning: Bishop Edward Slattery of the Diocese of Tulsa with the deacon formation class of 2020. The men were received into candidacy yesterday. Congratulations!

I was struck by the clerical dress. Does anyone else know of places where permanent deacon candidates wear cassocks and surplices?
