A deacon is a clergyman who maintains close ties to the laity through his work and family life. His primary role in the Parish is to assist the Priest to animate the church’s ministry to those in need by working with his Pastor and the members of his Parish Community not by doing it all himself. The Permanent Diaconate Office provides assistance to ordained deacons, and to those seeking the Diaconate.
