Deacons

Just ordinary men.  They either have jobs or might be retired, usually they are married.  But there is something different….  They were called forth from the church ranks by God to be ordained as servant-leaders. To give themselves over to a life of service to the church and the children of God.  Not for self glorification or money because these do not come from becoming a Deacon, but for the sake of a sacrificial love which echos the life of our Lord and Savior Jesus, the Christ of God.
Please join with me in praying for Priests and Deacons that they will be showered with abundant Graces to assist them in every aspect of their service to us and to God, and that they and their families will live lives that are filled with joy and consolation.
