Deacon Candidate — Class of 2022

Dan Grelle, St. Vincent de Paul Church, Rogers

Why do you want to be a deacon?

Throughout the years, I have been involved in my parish through various ministries. Practicing my faith is fundamental to who I am. I know that my life is not about me, but rather, a calling to serve others. I’ve often sensed the voice of God when receiving the Eucharist, asking me if I would serve his family. I can answer this calling by sharing my knowledge with others, assisting them with their needs and taking on a clerical role in the Mass. As a deacon this would enable me to share my love and enthusiasm for God and Catholicism in a unique way while serving as a connection between the Church and the parish family and community in which I live.
