Diocese to ordain Permanent Deacons May 24

Four men of the diocese will be ordained, God willing, as Permanent Deacons on May 24 at the Cathedral of St. Joseph.

They are Timothy Dickes, St. Katharine Drexel Parish, Sioux Falls; Maurice Barrett of St. James Parish, Chamberlain; Glenn Ridder of St. Mary Parish, Sioux Falls; and Thane Barnier of Christ the King Parish, Sioux Falls.

The four men and their spouses began their diaconal formation program in September 2014.
