diocese of austin to ordain three deacons tomorrow

Tomorrow, the Diocese of Austin will be ordaining three seminaries to the transitional diaconate. These three men will serve as a deacon for the next year or so before being ordained a priest for the Diocese of Austin. All are welcome to join the Diocese in this celebration at St. Mary’s Cathedral at 10 a.m.
Next Saturday, two deacons will be ordained priests at St. Margaret Mary in Cedar Park. I’ll be in Houston so I will not be able to pray with the Church for the two soon-to-be priests.
I’ve never participated in an ordination to the Order of Deacons before so I’m curious to see the differences in the rites in person. The one priestly ordination I’ve attended was the 2006 ordination of Fr. Jamie Baca, C.S.P. at St. Paul the Apostle Catholic Church in New York City.
