Anthony Klein was ordained to the diaconate Oct. 3 in the Basilica of St. Peter in Rome. Bishop Robert P. Deeley of the Diocese of Portland in Maine celebrated the ordination Mass for Klein and 30 other seminarians from the Pontifical North American College, which serves as the American seminary in Rome.

During ordination, the new deacons promised to live a life of prayer, celibacy and obedience to their diocesan bishop and his successors.
