Five to be ordained as priests and transitional deacons in Sioux Falls.

Five men are going to be ordained as priests and transitional deacons today and Friday in Sioux Falls.

Jeff Norfolk and Shaun Haggerty will be ordained as priests at 11 a.m. Friday at St. Joseph Cathedral and will be assigned to parishes as associate pastors, according to Diocese of Sioux Falls officials.

Daniel Moris, Daniel Smith and Paul King will be ordained as transitional deacons at 11 a.m. today at the cathedral.

They will complete their theological studies and expect to be ordained priests next year.

Haggerty, a native of Sisseton, and Norfolk, from Mitchell, were ordained transitional deacons last year and then completed their theological studies at St. John Vianney Theological Seminary in Denver.

Moris, Smith and King have been studying at Holy Apostles Seminary in Cromwell, Conn., and will return there this fall after a summer parish assignment.

Moris is originally from St. Paul, and Smith is from Presho. King was born in Ireland. Argus Leader
