The Catholic Diocese of Bathurst warmly invites men interested in learning about the permanent diaconate to join us for one of our regional information days this July. This is an excellent opportunity to explore a unique vocation within the Church, enriching both your spiritual life and the broader community.

The permanent diaconate or Vocational Diaconate, is a ministry of service, deeply rooted in the tradition of the Church. Deacons assist in liturgical roles, perform baptisms, witness marriages, conduct funerals, and engage in various acts of charity. This calling offers a way to live out the Gospel in everyday life, helping to connect those on the peripheries to the love and compassion of God.

Event Details: 

Each session will be repeated (attendance at one is all that’s needed)

13th July
Time: 2pm-4pm
Location: St Brigid’s Hall, Dubbo

These sessions will provide detailed information about the role of a deacon, the formation process, and the life-long commitment involved. You’ll have the chance to meet current deacons, ask questions, and discern if God is calling you to this ministry.
