Ordination of New Deacon

María Andía was ordained deacon on Saturday 5th May in the Cathedral of the Good Shepherd in Lima.
The ordination came as the highlight of a week long conference on the "permanent deaconate", to which deacons from the Dioceses of Dallas, Argentina, Uruguay and Cuba, as well as Peru, were invited.
María was among the first class of seminarians to graduate from the Diocesan Seminary in Arequipa in December 2004. She will serve in her home parish of Christ the Redeemer (Cristo Redentor) in Arequipa, where her husband Fr Juan Carlos Revilla is the parish priest.
Among her present responsibilities are the sercretariat of the Seminary and the Arequipa office of Diocesan Administration. María and Juan Carlos have three sons.
