Pray for Deacon Kevin Harmon's Ordination

Dcn. Kevin Harmon will be ordained to the priesthood on Saturday, May 21 at 10:30 a.m. at the Cathedral of St. John the Evangelist. In thanksgiving for his vocation and for the past five years of his ministerial service to our Parish, we will be giving Dcn. Harmon a gift. If you would like to contribute, please send your donation to the parish office with the memo "Dcn. Harmon Ordination."

Please pray for Dcn. Harmon and the five other deacons anticipating ordination to the priesthood. Friday, May 13, join us in praying a Novena for the Ordination to the Priesthood of Jesus Christ. Prayer cards are available in the church or you can view the prayer below.

Prayers and congratulations can be sent to Fr. Kevin Harmon St. Francis de Sales Seminary 3257 S. Lake Dr., St. Francis, WI 53235 A Mass of Thanksgiving will take place at St. Mary Parish at 5 p.m. on May 21. A reception will follow. Join us in celebrating with Fr. Harmon and in wishing him well as he prepares for his first assignment as a priest at St. Frances Cabrini Parish in West Bend.


Almighty God, giver of every grace, who apportion every order and assign every office, who remain unchanged, but make all things new, send your Holy Spirit into our midst to assist Dcn. Kevin Harmon in preparing for ordination to the Holy Priesthood, ready to offer himself as an Alter Christus generously and forever in the Eternal Covenant of the unbloodied Holy Sacrifice of the Mass.

Grant him wisdom when he is unsure, knowledge when he is afraid, counsel when he is confused, fortitude when he is feeling fragile, understanding when he is troubled, piety when he is feeling indifference, fear of you when he is proud, and your protection from every diabolical attack upon his vocation.

Help him to receive the Gospel of Christ: convince him to believe what he has read, train him to teach what he believes, and strengthen him to practice what he teaches. Hear the prayers of all your faithful servants and in the eternal charity that you have shown us, draw us all to that Heavenly Kingdom where all are made perfectly one at the Eternal Banquet of Christ, the Good Shepherd and Eternal King.

Grant this through our Lord, Jesus Christ. Amen. St. Anthony the Hermit, pray for him. St. Mary, Mother of God and Mother of Seminarians and Priests, pray for him.
