At a glorious Eucharist commemorating the Martyrs of Uganda, Bishop Breidenthal ordained four men to the diaconate on June 3 at Christ Church Cathedral. The new deacons are, Charles Graves IV, James Devin Rodgers, Jared Coffin Talbot and Emmanuel Tuyishime.

Each of the deacons will now begin a two-year residency program, either here in the diocese or close to the seminary they attend. Their residency placements are:

Charles Graves, Church of the Advent, Walnut Hills

Devin Rodgers, St. Gregory of Nyssa, San Francisco

Jared Talbot, St. Stephen’s, Columbus

Emmanuel Tuyishime, St. George’s, Dayton.
