Ordination to the Transitional Diaconate
June 5 @ 11:00 am - 1:00 pm PDT
With praise and thanksgiving to God, we joyfully announce that seminarian John DePalma will be ordained to the transitional diaconate by Bishop Daniel Mueggenborg on Saturday, June 5, 2021 at 11:00 am.
A transitional deacon is a seminary student in the process of becoming ordained a priest. They serve as a deacon for one year and are then ordained by the archbishop as a priest.
Seattle Vocations Prayer
God our Father,
You call each of us
to use our gifts in
the Body of Christ.
Inspire your people
with desire to know you,
the grace to understand your will, and,
with the strength of the Holy Spirit,
the courage to respond
with love and freedom.
Send workers into your great harvest
so that the Gospel is preached,
the poor are served with love,
the suffering are comforted,
and your people are strengthened
by the sacraments.
We ask this through Christ our Lord.
