BOYNTON BEACH | With praise and gratitude to Almighty God, St. Vincent de Paul Regional Seminary joyfully announces the ordination of nine seminarians as Deacons by His Excellency, Bishop William A. Wack, CSC, Bishop of Pensacola-Tallahassee. The liturgy will be live-streamed on Saturday, April 17, 2021, at 11 am at www.svdp.edu/live.

The men to be ordained from the Diocese of Orlando at this Mass are Zackary Gray, Kyle McClure and Joseph Tran.

As newly ordained Deacons, they will be assigned to parishes where they will exercise their ministry in preparation to become priests in the following year. Among many duties, they will preach, perform Baptisms, witness marriages, as well as preside over wakes and funerals. Please join in celebration and prayer for these men.
