Don’t miss an opportunity this weekend to support our deacons!  A special collection will take place this weekend at all Masses to help support the Diocese of Knoxville’s deacon formation program. Did you know there are currently 25 men in deacon formation? Our parishioner Leon Dodd is among these men in preparation. This weekend’s collection helps support a five-year program that prepares men to serve as permanent deacons in the Catholic Church in East Tennessee. Deacons bring the Gospel and the gift of themselves to soup kitchens, food banks, prisons, hospitals – serving in their parish and in the community. Please consider making a gift at mass this weekend!
