“Fifty Homilies from the Deacon’s Desk”: a treasury of homilies to ignite the soul and strengthen faith in Christians everywhere.
“Fifty Homilies from the Deacon’s Desk” is the creation of published author, Deacon Rick Wagner, ordained a permanent deacon in 2012 and currently assigned to St. Pius X Parish in Indianapolis, IN. In addition to his responsibilities at the parish, he serves as principal and vice president of mission and ministry at Bishop Chatard High School, also in Indianapolis. Prior to his role at Bishop Chatard, Deacon Rick served as principal of Guerin Catholic High School in Noblesville, Indiana. Before beginning his tenure at Guerin Catholic, he served as director of Our Lady of Fatima Retreat House in Indianapolis. His first book, "Remember What’s Important", was published in 2011. Deacon Rick has been married to his wife, Carol, for thirty-three years. They have four children and six grandchildren.
Deacon Rick says this about his homilies: “It is always my hope to make Scripture come alive for the congregation. I want them to hear the message of the Word presented in a new way. My ultimate goal is to offer them practical application—to give them real ways to live out the gospel message in their everyday lives”.
Published by Christian Faith Publishing, Deacon Rick Wagner’s new book shares stories and experiences from his childhood, relating to experiences the people sitting in the pews have also had, as he reads and interprets Scripture through the lens of that experience.
Since being ordained in 2012, Deacon Rick has delivered nearly one hundred homilies. He preaches regularly at his home parish of St. Pius X in Indianapolis, as well as at school Masses at Bishop Chatard High School, where he serves as principal and vice president for mission and ministry.
