On June 10, 2020, three transitional deacons of the Diocese participated in an all-day “new priests orientation” facilitated by Fr. Michael Lumpe, diocesan Vicar for Priests. They began the day with Mass and breakfast with Bishop Brennan. During the Mass the Bishop blessed the chalices and patens these men will use following ordination. Pictured from the left are Deacon Michael Fulton, Deacon Seth Keller, Bishop Brennan, and Deacon Frank Brown. Due to social distancing the ordinations are a ticket-only event, given the extremely limited seating for laity and clergy alike.
