“Wonderful”, “exciting”, “emotional” and “one of the most special days of my life”. That’s how new permanent deacon Gary Moore of Rhode described his ordination last Sunday.
On the day 42-year-old Gary was one of a group of seven ordained by Bishop Denis Nulty as the first permanent deacons in the Diocese of Kildare and Leighlin.
He was surrounded at the ordination not only by Bishop Nulty and his permanent deacon colleagues, but also by Fr Greg Corcoran from Rhode, his wife Dolores and his six daughters Laura, Niamh, Linda, Ellen, Caitlin and Charley.
