Ordination to the Transitional Diaconate - 5/2/2015
Archdiocesan third-year theologians at The Saint Paul Seminary will be ordained to the transitional diaconate on Saturday, May 2, 2015, at the Basilica of St. Mary, Minneapolis, at 10 a.m. The public is invited to the ordinations of these men for ministry and service.

As deacons, they will assist the bishops and priests in the celebration of the divine mysteries, above all the Eucharist, in the distribution of Holy Communion, in assisting at and blessing marriages, in the proclamation of the Gospel and preaching, in presiding over funerals, and in dedicating themselves to the various ministries of charity.

The transitional diaconate is comprised of deacons who seek to advance to the priesthood. In this archdiocese, they are usually ordained priests a year later.

Men in the permanent diaconate intend to serve the Church as deacons until they retire from this ministry.
