Sam West Among Those Ordained to the Diaconate

Sam West, a seminarian who helped out at Resurrection Parish last year, was been ordained to the diaconate for the Diocese of Stockton on Sunday, September 20th and is scheduled to be ordained to the priesthood on Saturday, December 19th.

While at Resurrection, Sam participated in our Sunday-morning RCIA sessions and came on Monday evenings to visit/help out with our Faith Formation classes and our Infant Baptism Preparation classes. He also presided at our Advent and Lenten Penance Liturgies.

Two other men have recently been ordained to the transitional diaconate for our own Diocese of San Jose. They are Rev. Mr. Joe Kim, who was ordained on Sunday, September 20th at Holy Korean Martyrs Parish here in Sunnyvale and Rev. Mr. Tito J. Cartagenas, Jr, who was ordained on Saturday, September 26th at Lawrence the Martyr Parish in Santa Clara.

We congratulate our new deacons and promise to keep them in our prayers.
