Make a friend. Be a friend. Bring a friend to Christ.
The deacon’s role in a parish is important and multi-faceted. At the mass, he assists the priest through proclaiming the Gospel, sometimes preaching the homily, and assisting at the altar. In his daily life, he is called, as we all are, to reflect Jesus’ light to the world.
