Bishop W. Shawn McKnight has summoned five men of the Jefferson City diocese to become permanent deacons.–Catholic Missourian
He plans to ordain them during Mass at 2 p.m. on Sunday, Oct. 13, in the Cathedral of St. Joseph in Jefferson City.
Four of the men and their wives have been preparing for the diaconate since 2015. Another entered formation more recently.
Summoned to service
“I’m a servant who is working for the Kingdom of God to flourish.”
That’s how Pedro de Jesus Almazan sees his calling to the diaconate.
