Two Becoming Transitional Deacons
June 1, 2023
ROCKFORD—Two seminarians will be ordained as transitional deacons June 3 by Bishop David Malloy.
 
They are Grant Colborn and Jeffrey Filipski.
 
Transitional deacons are seminary students in the process of becoming ordained priests. 
 
They serve as deacons for one year and are then ordained by the bishop as priests. 
 
Deacons are ordained as a sacramental sign of Christ, who came “to serve and not to be served.”
 
Whenever a person is ordained, he is to serve the diocesan Church.
