Among some of our recently-arrived new parishioners is a permanent deacon. Edward and Miriam Donosso have moved to Oklahoma and joined the parish. Upon recommendation from Ed’s former archbishop, our Archbishop Coakley has granted Ed faculties to serve as a deacon in the Archdiocese of Oklahoma City and has assigned Ed to St. Monica. So, our parish now has two active deacons (Jorge Pereira & Ed Donosso) and the faithful service of our semi-retired deacon (Jerry Rakosky)! Some of you have already met Deacon Donosso and his wife Miriam. If you attended the Our Lady of Guadalupe Mass, you saw Deacon Donosso assisting me along with Deacon Pereira.
Welcome to St. Monica Ed and Miriam!
