Permanent Diaconate Information Session

The Archdiocese of Seattle has opened the inquiry year for the permanent diaconate for Catholic men generally aged 35 to 56* interested in learning more about being a deacon. If you feel God is calling you to become a permanent deacon, consider attending an Information Session. These information sessions will be presented by Bishop Frank Schuster throughout the archdiocese.

No need to RSVP, you are encouraged to attend with your spouse (if applicable).

Please see the Deacon Formation Program page for more locations, dates, and times. More sessions may be added later.
