Bishop Barry Knestout will ordain 15 men as permanent deacons on Saturday, Sept. 25 at the Cathedral. The ordination Mass will be livestreamed on the diocesan webpage and facebook page.

Mr. Kirk Collins - a parishioner of St. Mary's Parish - is one of the men who will be ordained that day. He and his wife, Valerie, have been members of our community for over a decade, and have participated in many parish ministries. Kirk will serve as a deacon and preach his first homily at the 11:00 Mass on Sept. 26. A reception will follow in the Commons.
