Meet Maryknoll's new Deacon

Deacon Shaun Crumb, M.M.

shaun3Shaun Crumb spent his childhood at Woodlawn Resort and Campground in Glenwood, a fishing resort that his parents have owned and operated for the past 41 years.

His experience of service there helped inspire his journey toward becoming a Maryknoll priest, which will grow one step closer on Dec. 13 when he was ordained a transitional deacon at his home parish, Sacred Heart in Glenwood, MN.

“Growing up at the resort was good mission preparation because we were always on call to help people,” Crumb explained.
