Becoming a Deacon

From December 2018 through March 2019, our parish's permanent deacons presented a series of articles, "Becoming a Deacon", in the parish bulletin, which are also published here on the web site.

The series begins with Deacon Joe Ferrari's introductory article, followed by Deacons Don Helgeson, Fred Straub, Ken Miles, and Terry Taylor.
