Acolyte Ceremony for Permanent Deacons02.28.18
On Sunday, February 25, twenty-three men in diaconate formation took their next step to becoming permanent deacons in the Acolyte Ceremony during Mass at the Basilica of the Assumption in Covington, KY. The reading in Mark’s Gospel was about the Transfiguration, and Bishop Roger Foys hoped these men would have a mountaintop moment today.
Acolytes assist priests and deacons, preparing the altar and sacred vessels and when necessary serving as extraordinary ministers of Holy Communion at Mass.
Congratulations to those newly installed as acolytes!
