So Many Deacons

Have you ever wondered about deacons in the Catholic Church? What is their role? Where did they come from? Why are there so many? Most folks haven’t stopped to think about the true function, purpose and theological significance of the Permanent Deacon. Could God have an incredibly important plan for the deacons of His Church? Join Deacon Jeff and Tom in the Luxurious Corner Booth as they take on the topic of why there are so many deacons…and why there are many more coming!

Praying Purposefully

Have you ever told someone you’d pray for them…and then life happened (job, kids, distractions) and you forgot to do it? It happens to a lot of other folks as well. Even Deacon Jeff has had trouble following through with promised prayers – until he made some changes in the way he prayed. Join Deacon Jeff and Tom in the Luxurious Corner Booth as they discuss some quick and easy ways to make your prayers more purposeful and follow through with your promise to pray.

From Banker To Deacon

Is God calling you? He most assuredly is. In fact, He’s calling all of us…it’s just that sometimes we’re just too busy to hear Him. Join us in the Luxurious Corner Booth as we welcome Deacon Michael Stankiewicz, a Permanent Deacon from the Diocese of Wilmington in Delaware, as he speaks of God calling him to make the remarkable journey from a life of big banking to a life of diaconal service.

Transitional Deacons

Deacon Jeff talks with Deacon James Clarke, a transitional deacon and seminarian for the Diocese of Memphis about the differences between a transitional deacon and a permanent deacon, as well as his personal calling by God to serve in His Church.

The Deacon’s Wife

Deacon Jeff talks to his own wife, Bess Drzycimski about what it’s like to be the wife of an ordained minister. Plus, they let us in on a few family secrets (OK, nothing bad…just good old-fashioned Christian parenting).
