We Celebrate the Ordinations of Deacon Stephen Isley, OSA, and Deacon Aldo Potencio, OSA

Updated: Feb 17, 2023

It is our great honor to announce that the Augustinians began the new year by welcoming two of our friars into the diaconate.

On January 7, 2017, the Feast of the Holy Epiphany, the Most Reverend Daniel Turley traveled from sunny Peru to freezing Chicago to ordain Deacon Stephen Isley, O.S.A., and Deacon Aldo Potencio, O.S.A. The ordinations took place at Saint Rita of Cascia Parish on the city's south side. From the Midwest Province, Deacon Stephen anticipates his ordination to the Priesthood this summer, June 17.

In the above video we remember and commemorate this blessed evening as we hear once more Bishop Turley's moving homily for the feast of the Epiphany.
