After the Wednesday evening Mass, Friar Michael stopped for a photo with former Conventual friar-seminarian and current permanent deacon candidate John Micciche!  On March 27th, Friar Michael preached the third night of the Pastorate’s Lenten Mission at St. Clement Mary Hofbauer Church.  John Micciche is a devoted parishioner of St. Clement, who ministered as an Acolyte for the Mass.  John will be ordained to the Permanent Diaconate by Baltimore’s Archbishop Lori at the Cathedral of Mary Our Queen, on Saturday, May 25, 2019.  This will be a great moment for John and his family, for the Parish of St. Clement, Mary Hofbauer, for our “Franciscan Pastorate,” and for the Province of Our Lady of the Angels!  Let’s pray in gratitude for John’s and his wife’s marital vocation, for their children, for his deaconal vocation, and for his continued friendship and fraternal love for the friars of our province!
