Friend Ed Stroesser is a partner at Communique, a premier communications, media and public relations firm in Jefferson City. Yesterday Ed was one of eighteen "permanent deacons" (i.e., ok to be married; not planning on becoming a priest) ordained for the Catholic Diocese of Jefferson City. This morning Ed celebrated his first Mass as a deacon at his home parish -- Immaculate Conception. Pastor Msgr. David Cox (right) is shown with Ed.
Having become proficient with human communications, Ed hopes to expand his scope to include the divine.
We suspect he'll do a great job at that too. Best wishes.
