Permanent deacons were joined by their wives in celebrating their vocations to the diaconate at the 18th annual diaconate convocation, held July 27 at the Aqua Turf in Plantsville. Archbishop Leonard P. Blair presented pins to deacons who marked 20, 25, 30, 35 and 40 years of service, including Deacon George Hajjar who marked 40 years as a deacon and prison chaplain. Deacon Robert M. Pallotti, director of the Office of the Permanent Diaconate said that the gathering provides an opportunity to honor the long service of deacons and to thank the wives, each of whom was presented with a rose.
