Permanent Diaconate

The Office of the Permanent Diaconate is responsible for all aspects associated with the formation of deacon candidates and the ongoing formation and coordination of the Archdiocese's permanent diaconate community.

The Director facilitates the processes involved in the recruitment and selection of candidates, their formation, evaluation, and initial assignment. Through the academic, spiritual and pastoral formation of these men, the Director helps in the holistic development of each candidate within his family and within his community.

Additionally, the Director works with the ordained deacons in coordinating continuing education, retreats, assignments, exchange of information, meetings, support and other activities.
