Deacons: what would the church be without these men who preach, teach, and proclaim the gospel during Mass? Deacons are ordained men from literally all walks of life… some are married, some are not… and, in their service as deacons, they assist the Church in their own unique ways.

There are nearly 200 deacons to be found throughout Brooklyn and Queens. And this past Saturday, at an ordination ceremony celebrated by Brooklyn Bishop Nicholas DiMarzio at Our Lady of Angels Church in Bay Ridge, the Diocese of Brooklyn welcomed 27 brand new deacons into the fold.
