The Diocese of Brooklyn will soon have a new priest.
Samuel Mwiwawi was ordained a transitional deacon at St. Bernard of Clairvaux in Brooklyn on Saturday.
Hundreds gathered for the future father who for the last year and a half has been ministering to Catholics young and old to bring Christ into their lives.
He even learned sign language so he can converse with the parish’s deaf community.
Bishop Robert Brennan ordained Deacon Samuel, and said he hopes the deacon’s devotion inspires others.
