Let us give thanks to the Lord for the greatness of His mercy by giving us three new deacons. We pray that they may always be of service to the harvest of the Lord in the proclamation of the Gospel. May they become instruments of the Good News through their prayer life, service and witnessing. May they inspire more holy vocations in the Church, through the intercession of St. Hannibal Mary di Francia, Patron of Vocations!
