Diaconal Ordination of Paul J. Makar

Our parishioner Sub-deacon Paul J. Makar was ordained a deacon on Pentecost Sunday, May 31 2009. Metropolitan-Archbishop Stefan Soroka performed the ordination in our parish church at the 10 AM Divine Liturgy with our Choir "Boyan" singing the responses. After the diaconal ordination a luncheon was held in his honor at the school auditorium with approximately 250 attendees. Joyce Adamshick and her hard working volunteer kitchen crew provided an excellent buffet of sausage with peppers, baked BBQ chicken, baked ziti, potato salad, cold-cuts, and salad. A wide variety of homemade pastries, cookies, and cakes were served for dessert.
Deacon Paul J. is assigned to Reading PA where he will begin his Clinical Pastoral Education at Reading Hospital, School of Health Science. In the fall he will return to St. Josaphat Ukrainian Catholic seminary to attend his final year at The Catholic University of America (CUA) in Washington DC.
He has proudly followed in the footsteps of his father, Deacon Paul Makar Jr. who has been assigned to our parish since his ordination in 1987. May God grant Deacon Paul J. many more blessings as he continues his final studies for the priesthood.
