Casey Weber and Jonathan Perez will be ordained to the Diaconate on the 16th of May, in New Orleans. Jonathan spent last summer at Holy Spirit as a seminarian and was a joy to have with us all!
Because of the precautions taken due to the pandemic and our concern for our neighbors’ health (the Golden Rule of Jesus, Mt. 7.12), the Ordination will not be held at a public Mass. The Deaconate Ordination will be celebrated at Notre Dame Seminary –where they are currently quarantined–, in the Seminary Chapel. Further details to follow. Archbishop Aymond will ordain the two men plus seminarians from New Orleans and Alexandria. After Ordination, these two Deacons will come to Memphis for the summer before returning to Notre Dame Seminary, for their last year of formal formation. Please pray for these two men and for all the seminarians of CDOM, our brothers.
Their Deaconate Ordination will be streamed live through the CDOM website, their vocations Facebook page, and all the available platforms from the parishes around the Diocese.
Please share this special news and encourage all of our diocesan family to watch this celebration, so that we may come together as one, even if only virtually for now, to support and accompany them on this special date.
