Diaconate Ordination of Alexander Griffiths and Christopher Huynh
Look favourably also on these servants, we pray, O Lord, whom we humbly dedicate to serve at your holy altars in the office of the Diaconate.
Send forth the Holy Spirit upon them, O Lord, we pray, that they may be strengthened by the gift of your sevenfold grace to carry out faithfully the work of the ministry.
May every evangelical virtue abound in them: unfeigned love, concern for the sick and the poor, unassuming authority, the purity of innocence, and observance of spiritual discipline.
May your precepts shine forth in their conduct, that by the example of their manner of life they may inspire the imitation of your holy people. In offering the witness of a good conscience, may they remain firm and steadfast in Christ, so that, imitating your Son on earth, who came not to be served but to serve, they may be found worthy to reign with him in heaven. Who lives and reigns with you in the unity of the Holy Spirit, one God, for ever and ever. Amen.
On Saturday, November 21, Brs. Alexander Griffiths and Christopher Huynh were ordained to the diaconate by His Eminence Thomas Cardinal Collins.
