This last weekend, Emily and I spoke at the Newark Archdiocese Deacons Convocation. The theme was the Gospel of Matthew. What a privilege it was for me to share the great truths of this magnificent Gospel. Emily shared with the Deacons wives about how their participation in their husbands calling is so very important.
Deacon Jim Tobin and his lovely wife, Elizabeth were such great hosts. Thank you. Deacon John McKenna, who heads up the Deacons in Newark was such a gracious host. His vision for the Deacons is inspiring. Bishop Cruz gave a powerful homily at the closing mass.
Both Emily and I are very thankful for having had this opportunity. We will continue to pray for all the wonderful Deacons and their wives.
