The School of Ministry would like to extend its congratulations to the newest permanent deacons of the Diocese of Shreveport. The SOM was honored to provide the academic component of their formation in preparation for the diaconate.
We would also like to congratulate Nadalie Thomas and Jane Himel who were awarded Certificates in Adult Faith Formation for their completion of the academic requirements as well. Jim McGill, Janice Kay Peterson Professor of Applied Ministry at the School of Ministry, presented Nadalie and Jane with their awards on June 28, 2014, during the Ordination to the Permanent Diaconate ceremony in Shreveport, LA.
May God bless these 16 men and 2 women in their new ministries!
