www.upcatholic.org THE U.P. CATHOLIC November 17, 2017 11 I had this clear image of the Holy Spirit telling me to take the hands off the wheel of my life. Saying, 'let go of the controls, and I will answer this for you.'" Deacon Moseley again knew he needed to hear it from Cindy, much like the call to the diaconate. "After much prayer and discernment, she told me she was on board. And again I thought, if she said it, it must be what we're supposed to be doing." Now that Deacon Moseley has been learning the ropes of his new role, he has a few hopes for the future of the diaconate program. "The hopes are to continue to build a really solid diacon- ate program so that when men are ordained, they will be very good servants," he said. "And that their families have an understanding of what's coming and their role in all of this. That it's not just their husband or their dad, but it's the whole family." In addition to being the director of the diaconate, Dea- con Moseley is also serving as the pastoral associate of St. Christopher Parish in Marquette. There, he assists with the day-to-day functions of the parish. Cindy aids her hus- band his ministry there as the sacristan. Deacon Moseley took over the work at St. Christopher Parish following the departure of Sister Colleen Sweeting and Sister Marcelyn Gervais. Men who are interested in learning more about the per- manent diaconate are invited to contact Deacon Moseley, by email at tmoseley@dioceseofmarquette.org, or by phone, (906) 227-9103.
