Headline misrepresented Diaconate call to service

In the homily at Mass for the Ordination of Deacons on June 2, Archbishop Robert J. Carlson quoted the Prayer of Consecration, which he would use in ordaining each of 25 men to the permanent diaconate.

"May (these men) excel in every virtue: in love that is sincere, in concern for the sick and the poor, in unassuming authority, in self-discipline and in holiness of life. May they imitate Jesus who came not to be served but to serve."


A list of St. Louis missionaries provided to the archdiocesan Mission Office for an advertisement in the Oct. 21-28 edition of the Review included 61 names. Since then, it was learned of the names of six more: four Jesuit priests, Father Jerry Cusumano, serving in Japan; Father Daniel Kister, China and Korea; Father Tom Michel, Indonesia, Italy and Turkey; and Father David Wessels, Japan; a Claretian Missionary, Father Daniel Vogt, Apostolic Prelature of Izabal, Guatemala; and a Missionary Oblate of Mary Immaculate, Father Tom O'Brien, Brazil.
