Celebrating Life with a Deacon!


Deacon Tom Fox celebrates 22 years of his Diaconate Ordination! He was ordained into the Permanent Diaconate for the Archdiocese of San Antonio, receiving the Sacrament of Holy Orders by Archbishop Patrick Flores in August 1988.
Did you know that not many can receive all seven Sacraments in the Roman Catholic Church? Tom has received all seven. 31 years ago, Tom and I received the Sacrament of Matrimony.
Life is good…with God…with each other…and attempting to “run the race” as St. Paul so boldly calls Christians to live – in our vocation of marriage, Holy Orders and mission of evangelization! (1 Corinthians 9:24).

Photo was taken near ancient Philippi, where Paul baptized Lydia. Bishop Patrick Zurek offered Mass for our Pilgrim group near the river where she was baptized.
