Diaconate Office

Welcome to the Diaconate Office

The Office of the Diaconate provides ongoing education, preparation, and guidance to men who served the Church as deacons. Formation takes place before ordination and afterward - throughout a deacon's years of ministry. Local programs ensure that permanent deacons are ready and able to provide a thorough ministry of service in the particular circunstances in this Diocese. 

"For the Nurturing and constant growth of the people of God, Christ the Lord instituted in the Church a variety of ministries, which work for the good of the whole body." - (Lg #18)
