Deacon’s Support

“At a lower level of the hierarchy are deacons, upon whom hands are imposed “not unto the priesthood, but unto a ministry of service.” For strengthened by sacramental grace, in communion with the bishop and his group of priests they serve in the diaconate of the liturgy, of the word, and of charity to the people of God.”

-(Lumen Gentium, 29).


The Wife of the Deacon

During the formation process the wives of deacon candidates have the opportunity to grow along with their husbands and then, although not ordained, as wives of deacons they offer their gifts to the parish community.

The Diaconate Community

The Diaconate Community includes deacons, their wives and families, as well as others who are involved in both initial and ongoing formation.  We gather regularly in order to support each other as friends and as colleagues in ministry.
