New Deacons!

Congrats and Blessings on the Order's newest deacons! Ordained yesterday by 
Archbishop Robert J. Carlson, D.D. in St. Louis, MO 

 L to R: fra. Nick Monco, OP; Archbishop Carlson; fra. Augustine DeArmond, OP; 
fra. Thomas Schaefgen, OP

NB. The Rev. Br. Monco is a friar of the Central Dominican Province.  The Rev. Brs. DeArmond and Schaefgen are friars of the Southern Dominican Province.  Fra. DeArmond is a local boy.  His family lives in Springfield, LA just outside Ponchatoula, LA.  Fra. Schaefgen is from Memphis and a graduate of Tulane Univ.  Both the SDP friars were novices when I lived in the senior community in Irving, TX.  

They're all grown up!  (sniffsniff)

  1. Still growing, pater; it'll be nice having deacons in the house.

    Can't wait till they're ordained to the priesthood!
