It was more than four years since a transitional diaconate had been celebrated at Cathedral of St. Peter in the Diocese of Wilmington.

Like many important gatherings on the church calendar, the diaconate scheduled for May was postponed as Bishop Malooly suspended all large church gatherings while public officials in Delaware and Maryland tried to curb the spread of the coronavirus.

A limited gathering of family, priests and well-wishers were present for the Aug. 2 diaconate of Rev. Mr. Michael Preston.
