14 Seminarians are Ordained to the Sacred Order of Deacon

August 09, 2017


This Saturday, 11 St. John’s seminarians will be ordained to the Sacred Order of Deacon at the Cathedral of Our Lady of the Angels.  This includes nine men from the Archdiocese of Los Angeles and two from the Archdiocese of Kiyinda-Mityana in Uganda.  They join three additional seminarians who were ordained to the diaconate for the Diocese of Orange and the Maronite Order of Los Angeles earlier this summer.

Our 14 new deacons – Egren Gomez, Danilo Guinto, Gilbert Guzman, Ian Hagan, Paul Keeya, Spencer Lewerenz, John O’Brien, Aristotle Quan, Rami Razzouk, Tommy Roide, Peter Saucedo, Joachim Ssebwana, Matt Wheeler and Elias Yazbeck – would be grateful for your prayers as they begin their last year of study, discernment and service with us in preparation for ordination to the priesthood.

The public is invited to join in the celebration at the Cathedral, which begins at 9 a.m. on Saturday, August 12.   Tickets are not necessary.  If you would like more information, please call our Development Office at 805-482-2755, ext. 1010 or 1104.
