60 new permanent deacons for Santa Barbara and Ventura counties

The June 22 issue of The Tidings reports on (click on this post's title) the June 16 ordination of 60 men to the permanent diaconate for our Archdiocese's Santa Barbara Pastoral region.

They come from 28 of the Region's 38 parishes. Many of the new deacons speak Spanish, so they will fill a great need as they minister to Catholics who are constantly beset by Protestant and non-Christian sects.

Let us pray for each of these men and for the fruitfulness of their efforts. Let us also pray that God will give us many new priests, sisters and brothers.
