Bishop Alan McGuckian ordains two deacons in Rome - Easter Tuesday 2018

Today in the Basilica of Saint Prassede, Rome, Bishop Alan McGuckian SJ, Bishop of Raphoe, ordained two seminarians to the diaconate, Reverend Anthony Briody, from the Diocese of Raphoe, and Reverend Declan McGeehan, from the Diocese of Derry. The two new deacons are resident in the Pontifical Irish College in Rome, from where they are perusing their studies for the priesthood.

Monsignor Ciarán O'Carroll, Rector of the Pontifical Irish College said, "It is with great joy that we celebrate the ordination to the diaconate today of Anthony and Declan. On behalf of everyone at the Pontifical Irish College I congratulate our two new deacons on their ordination. I wish them every happiness and blessing as they commence their diaconal ministries of service, of charity and of leadership in prayer and liturgy. May they experience God's grace anew in their lives so that they may courageously proclaim the Gospel in word and deed, generously serving the people of God in their dioceses with care and compassion."
