the deacon’s car fund campaign

June 4, 2012

Thank you to everyone who donated to the Soon-To-Be Deacon Charles’ car fund!  On Thursday, Charles purchased a vehicle with over $5000 of your generosity!  On Saturday, he was ordained a transitional deacon for the diocese of Grand Rapids.  And on Sunday, after his first Mass as deacon and a small reception, Charles packed the car and headed down to Atlanta for his summer internship working as a chaplain at Emory Hospital.

Thank you for supporting Charles, his vocation and his ministry!

UPDATE: A message from the Deacon

To everyone who helped me buy this car: Thank you, thank you, thank you!!!
I am truly grateful for all of you who support my vocation to the priesthood through your prayers. Through your generosity, I now own this beautiful car!
I drove the car down to Atlanta last night to begin my summer program. After mountains and hills and thunderstorms and 13 hours behind the wheel, I can say this car is great!! ;)
