Deacon Information Night

Deacons are called to serve.


The title “deacon” comes from the Greek word “diakonos,” which means “servant.” Though all Christians by baptism are called to “diakonia,” or service, deacons serve as a public sacramental sign of Christ in and at the service of the world. Like a priest, a deacon is a member of the clergy who shares in the ministry of the Bishop. Unlike a priest, he may also have a wife, a family, and a secular job. The diaconate is a distinct vocation, or calling, to imitate Christ in His service to all humanity, to bring the world to Christ and Christ to the world.


Join us for a special talk, “Come and Serve: Discerning the Permanent Diaconate”. All men who are interested in this ordained ministry, along with their wives, are invited. Saturday, Nov. 5 from 9 a.m. to 1:00 p.m. at Christ the Redeemer Parish, West Vancouver. Registration is required and accepted until Oct. 28. Light lunch will be provided. Please register by emailing deacons@rcav.org.

The annual Mass for deceased bishops, clergy and consecrated men and women will be held at Holy Rosary Cathedral on Wednesday, November 9 at 12:10 pm.
