On May 11 our own Tim Michaelree was installed into the Ministry of Acolyte. This is the last formal ministry prior to ordination. With God’s grace Tim will be ordained a Deacon next spring. As an acolyte you will most visibly be seeing Tim in a different role. His focus in the next year will be moving from serving in the ministry of lector to assisting at the Sacrifice of the Mass (altar preparation, purification of the sacred vessels, etc.) serving as Eucharistic Minister at all Masses he is assisting at and in other ministerial roles throughout the year. During this last year of formation Tim will be working with a deacon who will be his mentor, continuing his academic formation along with preaching course, practicum courses and workshops. Please keep Tim and Suzanne in your prayers as they embark on this last year of formation.
