Deacon Candidate — Class of 2022

Chris Dorer, St. Francis of Assisi, Roland (Little Italy)

Why do you want to be a deacon?

Psalm 139:2 tells us that we hold no secrets from the Lord our creator, and that he “discerns our purpose from afar.” I believe that the Lord has called me to the diaconate so that my heart can be formed in his — in service to others and in acknowledgement of the genuine self he desires me to be. Essentially, I want to be a deacon because I believe it is what the Lord wants as well.
