Diocese of Evansville – Permanent Deacon Program

Is Christ Calling You To Become a Deacon?

God is calling on each of us to serve one another in charity and love.  Some men are receiving a particular invitation from God to serve Christ and His Church in ordained ministry as Permanent Deacons.

Deacons have a unique identity as neither a lay person nor a priest.  Through the sacramental grace of Holy Orders, deacons are conformed into the image of Christ the Servant.  In communion with Bishop Siegel and his body of priests, deacons serve to build up the community of faith among God’s people through Word, sacrament and especially works of charity.

Our diocesan permanent deacons have greatly enriched our diocese by offering their lives in service in many of our parishes, hospitals, correction facilities and nursing homes as well as through outreach ministries to the homeless, the poor and hungry and the lonely and through many other ministries of charity.

If you might be interested in learning more, there are information meetings at the Catholic Center in Evansville on Saturday, December fourth at 9:00 AM and January eighth at 9:00 AM.    For more information contact Deacon Tom Evans by e-mail at tevans@evdio.org or reach out to the Deacon Council, deanery representatives below.
