  • Prison, jail ministry led to the diaconate

    By Marnie McAllister

    Dennis A. May, who was ordained a deacon Feb. 19 at St. Augustine Church, felt called to the diaconate after he started ministering to prisoners in Marion County.
    His ministry in local jails and prisons began about nine years ago when someone he knew was arrested. He discovered that Catholic inmates weren’t receiving the Eucharist or any other form of Catholic ministry.
