Diaconate • DIOCESE OF BRIDGEPORT

Calendar of Events

Diaconate Discovery Evenings
Have you ever wondered if you were being “called” to discern the diaconate?  Has someone, your pastor, a priest or a deacon ever mentioned to you that they can see you as deacon some day? Do you feel that God calling you to live your faith differently, perhaps as a deacon?  Want to learn more about how to sort this all out?

Join me and explore some of these questions and others that you may have about the Diaconate.  Diaconate Discovery Evenings will be a consistent space to wonder, explore, pray and share with other men of faith regarding serving the Church as a Permanent Deacon.

  • Be with other men of faith who are wondering if God is calling them to serve as a deacon.
  • To have an opportunity for prayer and reflection.
  • To form relationships and build community.
  • Meet deacons from around the diocese witnessing their ministries and journeys of faith.

If you are interested in attending, or have any questions, please feel free to contact Deacon Tim Bolton, Coordinator of Diaconate Vocations, dnbolton@diobpt.org.
