Scott Goodfellow of Avon Lake to be Ordained as Deacon


Parishioners at St. Joseph Catholic Church in Avon Lake are very proud of Scott Goodfellow, who will be ordained to the Order of Deacon this Saturday, October 26th.

Bishop Lennon will ordain Scott along with five other men at the 10:00 a.m. Mass at the Cathedral of St. John the Evangelist.  The newly ordained men will continue their studies while ministering to the people of the Diocese.

Through the generosity of parishioners throughout Northeast Ohio to the Rooted in Faith – Forward in Hope campaign, the Mass will be live-streamed on the diocesan website. The stream will be made available the morning of Saturday, October 26th.

The six men to be ordained are:

  • Matthew Joseph Byrne (Holy Family Parish, Stow)
  • Gustavus Max Cyrus Cole (St. Helen Parish, Newbury)
  • Christopher Andrew Cox (St. Justin Martyr Parish, Eastlake)
  • Scott David Goodfellow (St. Joseph Parish, Avon Lake)
  • Ryan Joseph Mann (St. Mary Parish, Hudson)
  • Timothy Joseph Roth (St. Charles Borromeo Parish, Parma)
