Today, June 27, is the Feast of St. Cyril of Alexandria. Cyril is counted among the Church Fathers and the Doctors of the Church.
To commemorate the saint on this feast day, the Daily Vine spoke to Father Mario J. Arroyo, pastor of St. Cyril of Alexandria in Houston, about the importance of St. Cyril of Alexandria in the life of the Church and the relation to religious liberty.
Take a few moments to reflect on Father Mario J. Arroyo’s interview. How does St. Cyril of Alexandria speak to you today?
The Office of the Permanent Diaconate has a three-fold mission: (1) to foster vocations to the permanent diaconate as a life of committed and sacramental service to the Church; (2) to direct the formation of candidates to the diaconate; and (3) to assist deacons, their wives and families and their colleagues in the Church in the living out of the ministry of the diaconate in service to the holy people of God.
