August 10th is the Feast of St. Lawrence, a deacon who was martyred for his faith. He was one of the victims of the persecution of the Roman Emperor Valerian in 258 AD. The diaconate’s primary role is to serve the poor, elderly, and widowed. Each year our parish deacons host a dinner for widows and widowers. There is even live entertainment provided!
