Deacons Dominic Corona and Dyan Machado were ordained by Bishop Robert Lynch on May 15 at St. Jude Cathedral. "The road to priesthood is a long one – nine years for both of these men," wrote Bishop Lynch in his blog, For His Friends.
"They are tested, tried, tested again and tried over and over. No one in the Church is more placed under the microscope as a candidate for priestly ordination in the Catholic Church," said Bishop Lynch.
Father Corona joins Father Tim Sherwood, our new pastor, and retiring Monsignor Caverly at St. Raphael. Father Machado is assigned to St. Lawrence parish in Tampa.
