Diaconate Formation

Telephone: (213) 637-7383

Provides ongoing education, preparation, and guidance to men who serve 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 circumstances of this Archdiocese.
