The Second Vatican Council reinvigorated the ancient order of deacons, reinstituting the Permanent Diaconate.

By calling and ordaining deacons the Church is saying something fundamental – that service is at the heart of the human and divine mystery.

A deacon is called by Christ to serve the Church and the world through a ministry of the altar, the Word and charity.


Single men over 21 and married men aged 35 years and over and their wives who are interested in finding out more about the ordained ministry of the permanent diaconate are invited to an information afternoon.
