Many thanks to Deacon Tom Fox for providing us these beautiful reflections. Join us each Lenten Monday for another installment in our 2009 series "Surrender". You can also download these podcasts via iTunes.
Deacon Tom Fox was ordained by Archbishop Charles Chaput into the Diocese of Denver. He worked in a mountain town parish at the foot of the Rocky Mountain National Park. Thousands of tourists and visitors came to his parish as they vacationed in and around the Continental Divide. Frequent requests for his homilies and Communion Service reflections led to a parishioner volunteering to set up a website (www.deacontomonline.com) where Tom stores some of his preaching. Deacon Tom has also worked with pre-marriage formation for young couples, baptismal prep for parents and he has taught RCIA for several years.
Tom's work on the internet led to his monthly contributions to the wonderful Lisa Hendey site for Catholic mothering (www.catholicmom.com) and a little later to a monthly column on the family site www.catholicfamilypodcast.com . The last year or so, Tom has been recording weekly reflections for the podcast found at www.catholicmoments.com He was interviewed on the Catholic Relevant Radio Network and he is working on completion of a Pontifical College Josephinum course on Diaconate Ministry for Marriage and Families. Deacon Tom and his wife Dee now reside in north central Arizona and Tom was granted deacon ministry faculties by the Tucson Diocese.
