Bishop of Manchester ordains 2 transitional deacons
The diaconate is the first of three ranks of ordained ministry in the Catholic church, which also include priesthood and the episcopacy, or ministry of a bishop.
Some of the duties assigned to deacons include preaching at Mass, baptizing and celebrating weddings.
He is a member of the St. Mary’s Seminary Schola and serves as a cantor. His summer parish assignments during seminary included St. John Neumann Parish in Merrimack and St. Andre Bessette Parish in Laconia, where he also served a pastoral year.
Paveglio was to be vested as a transitional deacon at his ordination by the Rev. Paul M. Gousse, pastor of Our Lady of the Holy Rosary Parish in Rochester and Saint Leo Parish in Gonic.
Following college, he worked as a human resources representative at BAE Systems in Nashua. He entered St. Mary Seminary in Baltimore in the fall of 2008.
His summer parish assignments during seminary included Christ the King Parish in Concord, and the St. Joseph Cathedral in Manchester. This summer, he will be serving in Saint Andre Bessette Parish in Laconia.
The Diocese of Manchester currently has 12 men preparing for the priesthood at seminaries in Baltimore, Md; Brighton, Mass; and Providence, R.I.
