Deacon Candidate — Class of 2022

Juan C. Mares, St. Theresa Church, Little Rock

En Español

Why do you want to be a deacon?

First, I feel that God is calling me to the diaconate. Second, I see the need in the Church due to the growth in the community. Each day I see that there is more need of the sacraments, people who need help with family problems, especially married couples, and addiction problems. Also, there is a great need of faith formation; and I feel complete happiness when I’m able to help and serve my neighbor.
