Deacons from across the Archdiocese of Philadelphia gathered with their wives, plus priests and lay faithful on Sunday, Oct. 15 at a Mass celebrated by Archbishop Charles Chaput at the Cathedral Basilica of SS. Peter and Paul celebrating 50 years since the restoration of the permanent diaconate in the church. The capacity congregation also joined in the archbishop’s prayers consecrating the archdiocese to Our Lady of Fatima on the 100th anniversary of her apparition to three children in Portugal.
