Newly ordained Deacon Stephen Young wants to inspire his children as others did him

Deacon Stephen Young, right, of Immaculate Conception Parish in Park Hills, accepted congratulations during a reception June 4 in Boland Hall following the Ordination of Deacons at the Cathedral Basilica of St. Louis.

Finding the Young clan seemed like a tall ask.

After all, the congregation numbered about 700 at the Cathedral Basilica of St. Louis for the ordination Mass of permanent deacons, on the first Saturday in June.

But the family proved to be pretty easy to pick out of the crowd.

For one, the Youngs sat in a defined area for families of the 18 men ordained that day by Archbishop Robert J. Carlson. The families were just behind the men to be ordained, starting in the third pew.
