Deacons share fellowship, learning in convocation

Some 160 deacons of the Denver Archdiocese held a convocation with Archbishop Samuel Aquila on Feb. 22.  The day started with Mass in Christ the King Chapel at the John Paul II Center in south Denver presided by the archbishop, after which the deacons met in Bonfil’s Hall for a talk by the prelate.  Other speakers for the day included St. John Vianney Theological Seminary professor Sean Innerst who spoke on “Prayer, the Scripture and the Catechism,” Deacon-Dr. John Volk spoke on end-of life-decisions and  Larry Smith, CEO of Catholic Charities,  spoke on diaconal involvement in the many services Catholic Charities offers.
