Ordination update: 18 new deacons for San Antonio

Deacon Greg Kandra - published on 06/18/11

June is bustin’ out all over — with deacons!

Some details, from the local paper:

This year’s class of deacons includes men with varied and interesting backgrounds, each with their own unique story of faith. They include a former captain of the swim team of the U.S. Air Force Academy, a former railroad president and CEO, an aircraft salesman, a dentist and a computer systems analyst.

His wife Eileen Heeney attended classes with his counterparts in his stead.
