Deacon Spencer has been assigned to St. Mark’s to serve the parish along with Deacon Sean.
As a permanent deacon Spencer will be able to proclaim and preach the Gospel during Mass, and preside at weddings, funerals and baptisms. He will also assist in many other pastoral duties.
Spencer has been preparing for the deaconate for four years driving to the Elms College in Chicopee twice a week to take classes and instructions, all the while working full time as a psychiatric nurse at BMC.
St. Mark’s will now be doubly blessed by having both Deacon Spencer and Deacon Sean.
