Deacon Tom Lynd is a retired teacher, counselor, and administrator that came to work as the first business manager of SSPP in 1998. The following year he agreed to begin studies in the diaconate program with the approval of Fr. Jim Willig and parish council. Tom was ordained a permanent deacon in 2004 and has enjoyed serving the parish for the past 10 years.

Deacon Tom’s Pastoral ministries are many. Along with diaconating a mass each weekend, he preaches, baptizes and marries, leads prayers at cemeteries, and assists with the RCIA program, especially guiding our young catechumens through the process. Tom can be found many days visiting and praying with the sick and homebound, teaching at PREP on Monday nights, or breaking open the Word with parishioners.
