Called to Service Ministry

A deacon is an ordained man who has received special formation and training to serve the Church. He lives a life of service that integrates family life, the workplace, the community, and ministry. His life of service is generally rooted within his parish and extends in outreach to the community and those on the margins. His threefold ministry includes: service of the word, service of liturgy, and service of charity, justice and pastoral outreach. The first deacons began serving the church at the time of the Apostles.

More information about Deacons can be found on our public Diocese of Green Bay website.
