Tyrone  MaddyThe Catholic communities of St. Ann’s Church and St. Joseph’s Church, in Mooers Forks and Mooers, respectively, have been blessed with Deacon Tyrone Alfred Rabideau since his ordination on October 3, 1981. Deacon Tyrone, a member of St. Ann’s Parish for the majority of his life, has served our parishes with much dedication and humor throughout the years.

His ministry has involved working with the Parish Adult and Youth Ministry, teaching high school religion, confirmation retreats, and scheduling readers, Eucharistic ministers and ushers. In 2003, when Deacon Tyrone retired from Ayerst (Wyeth) Pharmaceuticals he took on even more duties which included involvement in the time release religion classes, maintenances of the parish buildings, church and mass preparations, parish board meetings, and assisting at wakes, funerals, weddings and baptisms. His devotion has proved to be an invaluable asset to all.

Deacon Tyrone and his wife, Maddy, recently relocated to Plattsburgh. On October 12, 2012 many parishioners, friends and family members joined together to celebrate Deacon Tyrone and Maddy, for all they have done for our parishes and community throughout the years.   A celebratory dinner was held at St. Joseph’s Catechetical Center, with Father Gerald Cerank and Bishop Terry LaValley residing. Father Cerank and Bishop LaValley offered blessings and many kind words for Deacon Tyrone and Maddy.

Our church community surely will miss Deacon Tyrone’s dedication and witty sense of humor. He and Maddy have provided much love, strength and spiritual guidance to many throughout the years. We wish them both the best as they begin to celebrate this new chapter of their lives.
