Catholic men, and their wives if married, with a deep spiritual life who are between the ages of 29 and 55 are invited to join an in-person discussion panel with clergy on Saturday, Nov. 20 at 10 a.m. about discerning a vocation to the permanent diaconate and admittance to the School for Diaconal Formation program.
The event at St. Helena Parish, 5th Street and Godfrey Avenue in Philadelphia’s Olney section, will explore the call to serve Jesus Christ and his church within the Archdiocese of Philadelphia as a permanent deacon.
After an introductory talk there will be time for questions and answers.
