Deacon Neil Daculan

St. Justin’s Parish

Wheelers Hill, Victoria 

My journey towards diaconate started with my family.  Angelica is such a beautiful wife who, while working as a theatre nurse, is very much a hands-on mom to Alexandria and Myrth.  The beauty that she possesses is a testament to the stability of our family.  It is a beauty like gold, tested through fire and moulded through life experience.

I came to realise my call with the vision I have in front (and all over) me: my family.  My vocation as a married deacon is a gift I offer back to God for giving us the grace beyond what we deserved or expected.  Diaconate is like a small token of gratitude I gladly splash in the fountain of God’s love.

I am blessed by His gift.  I am returning it to Him a hundredfold.
