On December 2, 2017, Bishop Gregory J. Hartmayer, O.F.M. Conv., challenged Savannah’s 2018 deacon candidates to “lead by example, to witness to the beauty and mystery of the liturgy in order to help others participate in these sacred mysteries” as they were duly installed into the Order of Acolyte. The installation, held at Immaculate Conception Church in Dublin, marks the end of the fourth year of a five-year formation, and is the final ceremony before the class’ ordination next May.
