The Diaconal Formation program meets every Saturday from September to December (Fall Semester) and January to May (Spring Semester). Completion of the course of studies fulfills the necessary academic requirements for ordination to the Holy Diaconate. (In accordance with Canon Law, all decisions regarding ordination rest with the diocesan hierarch.) Men among the laity interested in pursuing theological study, spiritual formation, and liturgical training, and sense they might be called to the diaconal ministry, are encouraged to consider applying to this program and seek guidance from their parish priest. <a href="/files/flyers/2015/Philadelphia-Stephens/Deacon-program-certificate-poster-philly-2015.pdf" target="_blank">Click here or on photo for flyer.</a></p> Diocese of Eastern Pennsylvania http://doepa.org/news_150626_3.html
