Deacon Greg Kandra - published on 07/20/16

From the Diocese of Norwich Diaconate website: 

Congratulations to Deacon Ben LoCasto and Deacon Octavio Flores who were ordained to the Permanent Diaconate on Saturday, 7/16/16 at 10:30 AM. Congratulations again to both of you and your wives Rachel Locasto and Laura Flores for completing a most important journey. Your lives will never be the same. Thanks to all the Deacons and wives who attended the Ordination. It was a great celebration and a reminder of the gift of the Diaconate. It was a humbling experience.

Congratulations and welcome, brothers! Ad multos annos!
