Cameron Degani Installed as Acolyte

Timothy Dang 1. My favorite family Christmas tradition is when all my cousins gather at my grandma’s house to decorate her living room. 2. The best gift I have ever given was a beautiful blue rosary chaplet for my mom and I’m so grateful to Mary for my mom’s increased devotion to her. 3. Please pray that we may continue to deepen our friendship with Christ and grow in awareness of him in everyone we meet.  Cameron Degani 1. My favorite family Christmas tradition is going to Mass on Christmas Eve, then going home to exchange gifts while listening to traditional Christmas songs and conversing with one another. There have been many great Christmases spent by the fireplace in good conversation and the joy of the season. 2. I think the best gift I have ever given was a French butter crock I gave to my mother. It allows you to store butter at room temperature to keep it soft and spreadable, while still keeping it fresh. My mother likes to cook and uses butter often, so I think it has helped immensely in a practical way. 3. I would like to ask the faithful of the archdiocese to pray for me to be continually open to God’s will in my life, and that as a priest, I may be an effective preacher and witness of God and His Church in our diocese.

The newly installed lectors are commissioned to proclaim the Word of God in the liturgical assembly and to catechize the faithful. Acolytes are entrusted with the duties of attending to the altar, assisting the deacon and priest at Mass, and distributing Holy Communion as an extraordinary minister.
