Deacon letter update

Called to be a Deacon?

The Ministry of Deacon — Along with the ministries of Bishop and Priest, the Church recognises an additional ordained ministry, that of Deacon. These ministers assist in the Church at diocesan and local level in a variety of ways, practical and liturgical. The archbishop here in Luxembourg is seeking male candidates to Diaconate training and ordination. More information can be found this accompanying letter and in the accompanying flyer. (English translations to follow shortly). A Vatican theological commision is currently exploring the possibility of ordaining women as Deacons.

I would personally welcome ordained Deacons serving our community, complementing the extensive network of lay ministers we already have.
