Permanent Diaconate Information Seminar
Sunday, September 22, 2019
2:00PM – 4:00PM
A Permanent Deacon is ordained as a Sacramental Sign of the Church, as servant in active love and justice in society, in heralding the Word of God and in celebrating the Sacraments. If you have any interest in learning more about the Permanent Diaconate in the Diocese of Syracuse or about the Deacon Formation Program, this introductory meet and greet session will assist you in your discernment.
Men wishing to apply to enter the deacon formation program (next class beginning September 2020), must attend an Information Seminar together with their spouse.
Male applicants (who have discerned a call to service and who have parish or agency sponsorship) must have completed the Diocesan Formation for Ministry Program or its equivalent and completed the Safe Environment Training Program.
