Deacon Mark Writes


This weekend marks my turn to contribute to our parish bulletin and have the opportunity to share some thoughts with you this month.  I look forward to this opportunity to share with you the deacon’s role in the Church.

This past week a colleague at work asked me if I was ready now to say Mass.  I was somewhat surprised and gently explained that celebrating Mass can only be done by a priest. I went on further to explain that a deacon assists at Mass. Only a priest can celebrate Mass and consecrate the bread and wine into the body and blood of Christ.   A deacon has a specific role which is separate from the priest.  

 A deacon proclaims the gospel and once in a while may provide a homily with the pastor’s permission.  To make it clear during the Mass that the deacon is not involved in the consecration of bread and wine, the deacon kneels at the altar during the epiclesis, or calling down of the Holy Spirit.  The deacon stands once again after the consecration, when the Memorial Acclamation is proclaimed.  This is why you see me kneeling and standing at different times from the rest of the assembly.  The deacon stands to be of service and later elevates the Chalice of Precious Blood when the priest elevates the Body of Christ. 

There will be more to be share next week.


A wonderful priest once shared with me that I should not be afraid to “shoot for the moon” and ask God for huge hopes, impossible dreams, and deepest desires.  I had to admit I do not really requests things like this in my prayer.  But I think Jesus is encouraging this when He says, “If you have faith the size of a mustard seed, you would say to this mulberry tree,
‘Be uprooted and planted in the sea,’ and it would obey you. (Luke 17:6)  So take a risk to aim high and big, and ask Our Lord, in great faith, for what you need.  God is full of wonderful surprises, in His most perfect time.

Upon Further Reflection

One summer, a drought threatened the crop in a small town.  On a hot and dry Sunday, the pastor told the Catholic congregation, “There isn’t anything that will save us except to pray for rain.  Go home, pray, believe, and come back next Sunday ready to thank God for sending rain.”  The people did as they were told and returned to the church the following Sunday.  But as soon as the priest saw them, he was dismayed.  “We can’t worship today.  You do not believe,” he said. “But,” they protested, “we prayed, and we do believe.” “Then, where are your umbrellas?”

(From-Sheridan, Deacon Tom. The Second Book of Catholic Jokes. Chicago: ACTA Publications. 2010.)

In His Mercy,    Deacon Mark





  Yeah! We have 28 children in our Faith Formation classes! The Catechist and I rejoiced when one of the moms related that at Mass last week, her young son during the Gospel said out loud with a smile on his face, I know that story, I heard it in religion class!  

This week all the students learned about St. Francis (Feast Day Oct. 4th) and our new Saint, Mother Teresa (Feast Day Sept. 5th). We talked about how both of them were examples of living as disciples of Jesus and caring and sharing for others. 

Our First and Second Graders then learned about the Bible. They ended their lesson for the week playing a fun game, “Jesus Says”. It is like Simon Says, in this game  you do what Jesus Says, just like the two saints. 

The Third and Fourth graders learned about “Keeping Holy the Lord’s Day! The older children discussed this week’s readings and continued learning more about their Catholic faith.

On November 1st, All Saints Day, the children are planning on a very special celebration at the Mass. On November 16th the older students will be participating in the Hunters Mass at 6:00 pm.  What a great opportunity for the children to participate with the parish community in these celebrations of the Holy Eucharist. Be sure to come and share in the faith community!


God Bless!  Lois Maczuzak
