his wife Marcia answered the call to the diaconate. In June, Don was ordained to the permanent diaconate for the Archdiocese of Los Angeles. He will serve, at his home parish. St. Lawrence Martyr Church in Redondo Beach, California.
“The Word ‘deacon’ comes from Greek, meaning ‘to serve’,” he said. “This is my calling: to serve the poor, marginalized and prisoners.” Don is now entrusted with assisting his pastor and the needs of his parish, such as conducting baptisms, leading prayers, witnessing marriages, and conducting wake and funeral services.
Congratulations to Don and Marcia for their desire to serve the faithful in this special way!
