PEI State Knights of Columbus Walter is a member of the Tignish Council 7791, please share this great news with other councils.
“As the Father has sent me, so I send you.” (John 20:21)
Dear friends, With great joy and thanksgiving to God, I am pleased to announce that I have been called to the Order of Deacon by His Excellency Bishop Richard Grecco.
My Ordination will take place on Friday, August 14, 2020, at Saint Augustine’s Seminary in Toronto, and will be presided by His Excellency Bishop John Boissonneau, Auxiliary Bishop of Toronto.
Due to COVID-19 restrictions, only the priests in residence at the Seminary and a few guests will be attending.
I would like to thank Bishop Richard for calling me to the Transitional Deaconate and his support over the last six years of Seminary formation. Thank you to the priests of the Diocese, all of whom have been very supportive and have stormed Heaven with prayers for me. And to all the parishioners of the Diocese, who have also prayed for and supported me in many ways throughout my time in Seminary so far.
Everyone please continue to pray for me as I approach this important step of formation.
A special word of thanks needs to go out to the people of Tignish, PEI, and surrounding areas. I was extremely blessed to have been at Saint Simon and Saint Jude for my Internship Year. I have all great memories of my time there and all of the people there have impacted my discernment and made me a better Seminarian and man.
Finally, my thanks also go out to my family, most of whom are in Nova Scotia and Ontario, for their continued support.
I am sorry you cannot be here to celebrate with me, but there will be plenty of pictures to share.
Obviously, I would not be here without you all and I thank you all for your love and support.
Transitional deacons are seminarians, students in the last phase of training for the Catholic priesthood. After being a deacon for a year, they are ordained a priest.
Deacons, priests, and bishops are considered clerics, members of the clergy, in the Catholic Church. We can now begin to pray for my future priest ordination, which will hopefully happen in 2021 when I complete my Seminary formation.
Thank you for your continued prayers. ~ Walter Flynn
