Transitional Diaconate Ordination in Sunset Park


Auxiliary Bishop Octavio Cisneros ordained Pedro Francisco Angucho Lopez to the transitional diaconate at St. Michael’s Church, Sunset Park, June 10. He has served at the parish for the last six years. Deacon Lopez’ family looked on as Father Kevin Sweeney, pastor, dressed him in the vestments of his office – a dalmatic and stole – an important step on his journey toward priesthood. An outdoor reception followed on the parish grounds.
