Give to the Permanent Deacon Formation Program


SUPPORT OUR DEACONS Special Collection

This special collection helps to support a five-year program for the formation of permanent deacons for the Church in East Tennessee.

Did you know?

  • Deacons bring the Gospel and the gift of themselves to soup kitchens, food banks, prisons, hospitals – serving in their parish and in the community.
  • We are blessed with 74 permanent deacons serving in 35 parishes across East Tennessee.
  • Currently, 25 men are in deacon formation classes.

Your donation helps to support the formation of new deacons in the Diocese of Knoxville.  Please consider making a gift today.

Thank you and may God bless you for your generosity.
