When I think about being a Permanent Deacon, a job comes to mind. A Waiter! He is preparing the Lord's Table, working hard to make sure everything is just right. His mission is to take care of the guests by helping them go through the menu and make just the right choices. How can I help you today!!
Yes, this is my First Christmas.....as a Deacon of course. Fr. Andrew reminded me and the entire congregation of that, along with the story ...

An Advent message
I was blessed this morning to be able to preach to the parish for a Saturday morning mass. I figured father had a busy schedule, and I can always use the practice. I will give you the highlights, two points that I thought were critical in today's Gospel. Walking the Journey in faith, and keeping our focus on the Lord. Even though this is important during Advent, it should be a daily occurrence. When we stay focused, when we live for Jesus Christ, we begin to walk into the light. When we do it on our own, and want to take control, it is them that we let the darkness set in. We are children of light, we need to put on the armor of light. We must live as what we were created for, that all our lives glorify God.
