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, con-celebrate Mass, witness marriages, and preside at various liturgical functions (prayer services, vigils, gravesides services etc.) outside of Mass.
We are blessed with 5 deacons at St Thomas More — Deacon Tony Patronite, Deacon Stan Necikowski, Deacon Tin Nguyen, Deacon Leonard Sun & Deacon John Selig.
