Six new deacons for Sydney

Smiles, salutations and clapping greeted Sydney’s newly ordained permanent and transitional deacons as they made their way down the central aisle of St Mary’s Cathedral on 26 March at the end of a solemn, ordination Mass.

Archbishop Anthony Fisher OP ordained a total of six men, two of whom – Deacon Mervyn Anthony Francis and Deacon Mata’afa Aisavali Lemisio Salu – were the first to be ordained to the permanent diaconate in Sydney in 15 years.

Three seminarians from Redemptoris Mater Missionary Seminary, a seminary in the Neocatechumenal Way, were ordained transitional deacons on their way to priesthood: Deacon Angel Gustavo Criollo Farfan, originally from Ecuador; Deacon Daney Suresh Irudayadoss, originally from India; and Deacon Mate Litric, originally from Croatia.

Seminary of the Good Shepherd seminarian, Joshua Gerardus Miechels, who grew up in North Strathfield and is a member of the Emmanuel ecclesial community, was also ordained a transitional deacon.     [Full Story]
