About the Deacons

Upcoming Events

Around 120 deacons serve the faithful of the Diocese of San Diego. Though they are actively engaged throughout the year in their own service projects, the Million Meal Event represents the first time they have all been invited to participate in a single, diocese-wide endeavor. They held their inaugural event in June of 2022.

The coordinating team for this project is led by Deacon Mike Daniels, of St. Brigid Parish in Pacific Beach, and includes Caroline Kelner, also from that parish; and Deacons Kevin Murray, of Sacred Heart Parish in Coronado; Jim Scull, of Ascension Parish in Tierrasanta, and Wil Hollowell, from Corpus Christi Parish in Bonita.

The deacons are partnering with Kids Around the World, Inc. (KIDS), a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization dedicated to helping children and families devastated by poverty, natural disasters, war and illness.

The deacons invite all the faithful across the diocese to support this project with their funds, their hands, and most important, their hearts.
