Fr. Mark is very happy to announce that two new deacons will begin their ministry here at Saint John beginning in June.
- Deacon Phil Czajkowski was ordained at the Cathedral of Mary Our Queen on May 6, 2017 by Archbishop Lori and lives in Sykesville with his wife, Camilla. He is a veteran of the U.S. Army and is a Cyber-Security Engineer.
- Rev. Mr. John Martinez is being ordained a transitional deacon this weekend at the Basilica in Baltimore and was born in Puerto Rico. He is currently studying for the priesthood at Saint Mary’s Seminary and University. John will be with us full time during the summer and will become part time when he returns to seminary in August for his last year of studies. He will remain with us until his ordination to the priesthood in June 2018.
A Mass of Thanksgiving will be celebrated on Sunday, June 11th at the 10:30am Mass to welcome our new deacons and to thank God for their new ministry.
