BOCA RATON | Ryan Saunders of St. Anthony Parish in Fort Lauderdale and Andrew Tomonto of St. Louis Parish in Pinecrest were ordained transitional deacons for the Archdiocese of Miami April 6, one of the final steps of their journey to priesthood.
Venice Bishop Frank Dewane celebrated the Mass and ordained the men, along with 13 others also completing their studies for the priesthood at St. Vincent de Paul Regional Seminary in Boynton Beach.
The transitional deacons will spend the next year completing the last of their academic courses while working weekends as deacons in a parish to which Archbishop Thomas Wenski will assign them.
