    I've attended many an ordination at St. Luke's and elsewhere.

    What's especially nice is a perpetual diaconate, something of which the Rt. Rev. Jack Spong disapproved when he was the bishop of Newark.  We had two in our parish but they were grandfathered-in before +Jack arrived.

    There is definitely a need for perpetual deacons (especially here in Maine) and I firmly believe in the calling.

    I was merely saying how nice it also is when licensed and properly trained lay people lead the offices.
