These orientations coordinated by The Office of the Permanent Diaconate will be done a couple times a year and assist our new deacons in learning about the resources available to every parish and ministry.
The Office of the Permanent Diaconate is a diocesan office of the Bishop committed to serving the diverse needs of the diocese, local parishes and their surrounding communities. The primary purpose of this office is to provide support to the deacons’ ministerial life and the proper formation of permanent deacons. Extern deacons are ordained in another diocese and have relocated (permanently or seasonally) to the Diocese of Orlando and have requested and been granted faculties to exercise their diaconal ministry here. We are grateful for all of our deacons and the many ways they assist and strengthen our faith communities.
