Permanent Diaconate

Have you ever felt called to the Diaconate?

Oscott Seminary has introduced a preparatory year for men discerning a call to the Permanent Diaconate. This is to begin in January 2017 and consists of three overnight stays, January, March and May. The aim of these sessions is to help candidates better understand the reality of a vocation to Holy Orders and to help discern whether this is what God is calling them to. There will be Parish based pastoral elements, spiritual formation and intellectual input given through teaching, seminars and discussions. Wives of prospective candidates will also be supported during these days and are encouraged to attend. Attendance at these days does not commit an individual to beginning the formation program; it is part of the overall selection process.

If you feel you may be interested contact Deacon Mark for an informal chat in strict confidence 07781416176.
