Deacon Candidate — Class of 2022

Brad Brown, St. Boniface, Fort Smith

Why do you want to be a deacon?

My interest in the diaconate started about three years before I retired. I was blessed with a wonderful wife, family and career, and after I retired and started volunteering within the different ministries in the parish, the desire to help and serve at a higher level became apparent. I began to discuss the possibility of applying to the next diaconate class with my wife, family, friends and some priests. After much discernment and prayer the Lord has brought me to this stage in the diaconate process. I am excited what the future holds.
