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 ...

I haven't been all day much more than two years. I have recently found how challenging, yes so challenging being a deacon. Early this week I was just informed, that an extremely dear friend had just passed away. Larry was one-of-a-kind, truly a unique man. There wasn't much that Larry did halfway, he lived life to the fullest. Tomorrow I travel a short distance to say goodbye to my friend and to share my condolences to the family and friends. Larry was such a beautiful gift that God gave me in my life, I am so blessed to have him be a part of my life. To God I will always be so grateful. I ask you all to pray with for the soul of Larry Gallant, and the family and friends he leaves behind.
