Deacon Candidate — Class of 2022

Tom Kirchner, Our Lady of the Holy Souls, Little Rock

Why do you want to be a deacon?

I believe that as one door closes God will open another door. He never leaves us in limbo. I have sensed that God has opened the door to the diaconate and I have chosen to walk through that door trusting that he has a plan for me on the other side.
