Deacon Candidate — Class of 2022

Dan Cartaya, Our Lady of Fatima Church, Benton

Why do you want to be a deacon?

Ever since my early 20s, I felt a calling from God to be a servant leader. When we first moved to our parish, I became friends with our deacon. He was a golden example of a servant leader. I felt called by God to follow in his footsteps.
