Ordination Mass

Michael Friedel, a seminarian from East Alton (Holy Angels Parish) was ordained to the Transitional Deaconate (the final step before Priesthood) on Friday, April 1st, at 6:00 p.m. at the Cathedral in Springfield. We have been supporting Michael as a seminarian in both the Council and the Assembly. He is also a graduate of Marquette High School.

Some of our 4th Degree Assembly traveled to Springfield to attend the ordination mass. It was great to see so many of Assembly #203 make the trip. Overall we had 8 members in regalia with 7 belonging to Council #4688. GK Mark Droste from Alton was the other. We were also happy to have Paula Mattix-Wand, Brenda Tebbe and Norm Frisch in attendance.
