Permanent Diaconate

Learn more about the diaconate

To be ministers of Word, deacons proclaim the Gospel, preach, and teach in the name of the Church. As ministers of Sacrament, deacons baptize, lead the faithful in prayer, witness marriages, and conduct wake and funeral services. As ministers of Charity, deacons are leaders in identifying the needs of others, then marshaling the resources to meet those needs. Deacons are also dedicated to eliminating the injustices or inequities that cause such needs.
