On Sunday, June 10, 2018, Brother Gustavo Amell, S.T., was ordained to the Diaconate by Bishop Joseph Perry, Auxiliary Bishop of Chicago at St. James Church in Chicago, Illinois. Although it was a rainy day the joy and smiles of both Gustavo and the many parishioners, friends and benefactors gathered made the day perfect.
Gustavo is from our mission in Guamal, Colombia, which is always a great joy. This summer Gustavo will visit his family in Colombia and exercise his new ministry as Deacon in Guamal for about a month before returning to Chicago and Catholic Theological Union to complete his studies. Congratulations Gustavo!
