Bishop Anthony B. Taylor will celebrate the diaconate ordination Mass of Jon Miskin at 6 p.m. Wednesday, May 23 at Christ the King Church in Little Rock. Being ordained a transitional deacon is a major step toward priestly ordination. A reception will follow the Mass. All are invited to attend. If unable to come, set up a notification on your phone to watch the ordination live.

Guests are also welcome to attend a holy hour for Miskin at 4 p.m. Wednesday, May 23 at Christ the King. During eucharistic adoration and vespers, prayers will be offered for him and an increase in vocations to the priesthood and religious life.

Miskin, 25, is the son of Michael John and Anne Marie Miskin. He will serve his first Mass as a deacon on Sunday, May 27 at 12:15 p.m. at Christ the King Church.

In his vocation story he wrote, "My heart is filled with thanksgiving as I look back at my first several years in the seminary. They have been incredibly formative years for me as I look to deepen my love for Christ and his vocation for me each and every day." Read his vocation story.

Miskin is currently studying at St. Meinrad Seminary in Indiana in preparation for ordination to the priesthood in 2019. For more information, contact the Vocations and Seminarians Office at (501) 664-0340.
