Permanent deacons are ordained for service to the Bishop and assigned to work in a specific parish. Permanent deacons may baptize, proclaim the Gospel, preach, concelebrate Mass, witness marriages, and preside at various liturgical functions (prayer services, vigils, gravesides services etc.) outside of Mass.
We are blessed with 4 deacons at St Thomas More — Deacon Tony Patronite, Deacon Stan Necikowski, Deacon Tin Nguyen & Deacon Leonard Sun.
