is a non-denominational event. Everyone is welcome. This is
an outdoor event, so please dress warmly.

World Mission Sunday Collection – October 21

“Funds collected assist some 1,250
mission dioceses under the responsibility of the
Congregation for the Evangelization of Peoples. As
agreed by the Holy See and the Bishops of Canada, a
portion of the Canadian contributions assists 6 mission
dioceses in Northern Canada.”

Permanent Diaconate

The diocese of St. Paul invites application from candidates aspiring to be permanent deacons.
Deacons are ordained servants of the Church. They are mature
men who have been called by Christ, to serve Him and the Church.
They do this through participating in a threefold ministry of the
liturgy, the word and charity. “Jesus himself was the first deacon,
the servant who modeled the essential link between worship and
service which is the foundation of the diaconate.” (#1 National
Directory for the Ministry, Formation and Life of Permanent
Deacons in Canada, 2017, p. 16)
Permanent deacons are either Single Men or Married Men. Single
men may begin formation at 25 years of age, however, they must
take a vow of celibacy. Married men should be at least 35 years of
age, be living a mature spiritual life and have been married for
several years. He must have the consent of his wife and children.
Their family should be leading a Christian life and enjoy a good
reputation. A married deacon may not remarry even if widowed.
