Rite of Candidacy

The Diaconate community of Altoona-Johnstown is welcoming a new candidate. Bishop Mark formally accepted Mark Komula as a candidate for the Permanent Diaconate during a Mass on September 29 at Saint Peter Parish in Somerset – Komula’s parish.

He and his wife, Janis, are the parents of two adult children. Komula is in case management with the Bedford-Somerset Developmental and Behavioral Health Services. Our prayerful best wishes to him on his formation journey.
