THEOLOGY and a
Deacons: the men behind the men of the cloth. They are such a great blessing to many of our parishes. They do so much both at Mass and behind the scenes. However, have you ever wondered where deacons come from? Would you believe our first saint and martyr was a deacon? Join us at Gresso's on May 19th at 7:30 p.m. as we learn about the history of the deaconate and the formation process for deacons in our diocese today in "The Other Guy Up There: The Role of the Deacon." Our speaker is Jeffery Fortkamp who has completed his formation as a Deacon and he will be joined by special guests at various stages of their vocation. Gresso's is located at 961 South High Street. Doors open at 6 p.m. and food and drink are available for purchase before the talk. For more information, go to www.theologyandapub.org."
