Hierarchical Liturgy - 20th Anniversary of Diaconate Program
On Saturday, September 23, Archbishop William celebrated a Hierarchical Liturgy of Thanksgiving which commemorated the 20th Anniversary of the first graduating class of the School of Diaconate Studies at the Byzantine Catholic Seminary of Ss. Cyril and Methodius. In attendance were the living members of the class, along with several of their spouses. May God grant them peace, health, and happiness for many years to come!
The four-year Diaconate Program, which consists of remote study and training throughout the year, along with a yearly two-week intense class period held during the summer at the seminary, has since produced dozens of Deacons who have faithfully served and assisted in our parishes in many aspects of ministry.
