Attend A Diaconate Discovery Evening

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

Join us to 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.
