hubby and i met Radley when he first arrived at mundelein seminary as a pre-theology student five years ago. energetic and full of enthusiasm but well-grounded knowing that he has a long journey to the priesthood. he works hard and perseveres. he is such a jolly person with a big smile always in a cheerful mood. last weekend, we were privileged and honored to witness his diaconate ordination. the newly ordained deacon is one year away from becoming a priest. we continue to pray for him and his vocation.
Radley was ordained deacon along with three others in the Chapel of the Immaculate Conception at Mundelein Seminary by Archbishop Blasé Cupich of the Archdiocese of Chicago.
hubby and i joined our friends to his first mass as a deacon at St Anastasia Church in Waukegan on Pentecost Sunday!
