Deacon John DeGuardi was ordained a deacon for our diocese in May 2000 and served at OLL up until November 2020 when he retired from ministry and moved to New Jersey with his wife, Anne. One of Deacon John’s passions was his artwork, and many of his beautiful creations decorate our church, rectory and convent.Deacon John had a generous way of sharing his gifts and talents.  Below are just a few examples of the beautiful creations he made for our parish family.
