    Two men were ordained May 24 for ministry in the Diocese of Spokane.

    That evening, Bishop Skylstad ordained Joseph Sullivan to the diaconate, and Deacon José Jaime Maldonado to the presbyterate at the Cathedral of Our Lady of Lourdes.

    Deacon Sullivan is spending his summer ministering at St. Charles Parish, Spokane. He is scheduled to complete his priestly formation studies at Mount Angel Seminary, St. Benedict, Ore., this coming school year.

    Father Maldonado has been assigned as parochial vicar of St. Patrick Parish, Pasco. He also studied at Mount Angel.
