Group Photo from Deacon Ordination

June 3rd, 2016, Promulgated by Bernie

Here is an obligatory Catholic “on-the-front-steps” group photo from last Saturday’s deacon ordination day.

Let’s have you all chime-in to identify everyone in the photo, other than Bishop Matano. I know some of the people but not all. Most especially, identify the four newly-ordained deacons.

    From a Reader: New Deacon Tony Amato is standing to the left of the bishop. The newly ordained deacon on the other side of the bishop is Michael Merritt. Behind Michael is Juan Benitez Hoyes. Almost directly behind the bishop is new Deacon Thomas Jack and his wife (name?

    The two men in the more elaborate dalmatics are the deacons of the Mass: on the right, Deacon John Brasley head of deacon personal and, on the left, Deacon Justin Miller, who will be ordained to the priesthood tomorrow morning (June 4, 10:30A.M. at Sacred Heart Cathedral).

    Behind Deacon Justin you’ll notice a seminarian with a beard. His name is Jeff Chichester. The two Vimpas for the Mass (servers who held Miter and Crosier) are Aaron Kelly (left) who is behind Steve Lewis (behind Deacon Thomas Jack and his wife)and Joseph Maurici.
