This past June I was privileged to serve at the ordination to the deaconate of two of Gaylord's seminarians, Dcn. Peter Wigton and Dcn. Joseph Ortega. It was a wonderful weekend. Every ordination is moment of extreme renewal for the Church especially our local Church. With each ordination God continue to bless and sanctify His bride, the Church. Dcn. Peter's ordination was especially moving for me since Dcn. Peter and I started seminary together at the Josephinum back in 2008. Dcn. Peter has been an older brother for me during my first few years of seminary and it was so awesome to see Bishop Hebda lay hands on him. So to Dcn. Peter and Joe I wish them good luck, blessings and Ad Multos Anos.
