PERMANENT DIACONATE The diocese have arranged a series of discernment sessions for men who may be interested in becoming a Deacon. These sessions are on Saturday 29 September, 24 November, 12 January and 16 March. These initial sessions will help to deepen your prayerfulness and to reflect upon where God may be calling you. They will give you an opportunity to explore the ministry of the permanent Deacon and how it is lived out in daily life. If you are considering a vocation to the permanent diaconate, please come and speak to Fr Michael.
