It is with a great sense of pride that I offer on behalf of our Tri-Parish Community our sincere congratulations and best wishes to Deacon Anton Nickolai and his family. Yesterday’s Ordination Mass was a beautiful celebration of God’s call to ministry in the Church. I am looking forward to the opportunity to work together with Deacon Anton and for his opportunity to enhance our parishes with his service as a deacon. In the very near future Deacon Anton will begin presiding at baptisms and wedding services as well as preaching on a regular basis at our Sunday liturgies. I want to also offer my appreciation to Mrs. Suzanne Nickolai and to their daughters for the sacrifices they have made to allow Deacon Anton to pursue his call to ministry. We pray that our Almighty Father may continue to bless and watch over Anton, his family and our parishes.
Congratulations Deacon Anton Nickolai!
God bless you always!
Father Jim Volkert
