Welcome to the Camden Diocese Deacon Website!
You are invited to browse this site, where you will find various articles, programs and practical “how to’s” all aimed to help those discerning a possible call to serve in ordained ministry as a permanent deacon. There is a link that will enable you to Meet our Deacons, here you will find a brief reflection of each deacons’ personal Journey to the Diaconate. In addition to the vocational tools, you will find testimonies and reflections submitted by our deacons; this section aptly titled “Not Just on Sunday” will detail the various ministries that the permanent deacons are engaged in outside of the weekend liturgies. This weekly blog will provide a glimpse of how the deacons are living “diakonia” in the local communities. There is a link to “praying the rosary” along with the daily prayer intentions offered by the deacons. You will also find various resources which open up a greater opportunity to learn more about our faith.
The Diocese of Camden is blessed to have seventy-five deacons actively assigned to parishes and another thirty-seven who are retired, many of whom continue to serve in various capacities. I sincerely hope you will enjoy, gain some knowledge and benefit from your visit. If you like what you see – pass on the Good News!
