The Calgary Diocese is looking for men of prayer and charity who are prepared to enter formation to serve the Church in ordained ministry as permanent deacons.
Men must be Roman Catholic, married or single, at least 35 years of age, have a minimum Grade 12 education, and be of sound moral character and mature faith.
During four years of Human, Spiritual, Theological, and Pastoral formation, the aspirant will prepare for the threefold ministries of Charity, Word, and Sacrament that are the call of the Deacon.
If you feel that you would like to explore the possible journey to becoming a Permanent Deacon, please visit THIS PAGE to get more information. We will accept preliminary applications at the two open house presentations (spouses encouraged to attend).
Mass will also be offered at 8:30 am prior to the presentation.
