Derek Remus ('11)

“Thought you might like to know,” writes Derek Remus (’11), “that Bishop William McGrattan of the Diocese of Calgary, Alberta, has called me to be ordained to the transitional diaconate.” The blessed event will take place at the end of Advent, on December 23, just in time for the newly ordained deacon to proclaim the Gospel and preach the homilies throughout Christmas.

It was four years ago — two years after his graduation from the College — that Mr. Remus entered St. Joseph’s Seminary in Edmonton, Alberta, for the Diocese of Calgary. By God’s grace, he will be ordained to the priestood next summer, making him the first alumnus to serve as a diocesan priest in Canada!

Please keep an all alumni seminarians in your prayers.
