The deacon aspirants for the Diocese of Knoxville will be received by Bishop Stika as candidates for ordination, an important milestone in their formation to become a permanent deacon.
All are welcome to attend this Sunday Mass!
From the National Directory for the Formation, Ministry, and Life of Permanent Deacons in the United States:
“In this rite, the one who aspires to ordination publicly manifests his will to offer himself to God and the Church to exercise a sacred order. In this way, he is admitted into the ranks of candidates for the diaconate.
All are welcome!
