Deacon

Don Cady
By appointment
“I serve as a bridge of support between the parish and the world. My service is to help the parish understand its role in serving the needs of all people in our world and, in a similar fashion, enlighten the world to the care and outreach of the church. In the Holy Eucharist I assist in roles specific to a deacon.”
