Two ordained deacons at Saint Meinrad
ST. MEINRAD – Two seminarians studying at Saint Meinrad Seminary and School of Theology received the order of deacon from the Rev. Christopher J. Coyne, apostolic administrator of the Archdiocese of Indianapolis, at the Archabbey Church in St. Meinrad April 14.
The newly ordained deacons are John Kamwendo, Archdiocese of Indianapolis, and Todd Nance, Diocese of Tulsa, Okla.
Other members of the class will be ordained at various times in their respective dioceses.
In the Catholic faith, a deacon can preach, baptize, witness marriages, offer Communion to the sick and aged, and perform other ministerial duties. The newly ordained deacons are transitional deacons, meaning they are preparing for ordination to the priesthood. Many Catholic dioceses also have permanent deacons, who carry out the same role, but are not studying for the priesthood.
The seminarians attend Saint Meinrad Seminary and School of Theology, which offers initial and ongoing formation for priests, permanent deacons and lay ministers.
