Ordination to the Permanent Diaconate - Archdiocese of Boston, September 17, 2011
Today was a joyous occasion for the Archdiocese of Boston; thirteen men were ordained as Permanent Deacons.I knew all thirteen men and their wives, and I rejoice that they, after many years of hard work, and prayer, have reached this day.
