The application and formation process for Deacon Class VIII will begin this fall.
Formation for the (permanent) diaconate is divided into three phases: inquiry, aspirancy, and candidacy. During the inquiry phase, those discerning a possible call to the diaconate begin a period of purposeful reflection on this calling.
To help them in this process, we will host “information days” in each of the six deaneries. The purpose of these inquiry sessions is to introduce men to the diaconate, explain our formation program and answer any questions that they or their wives might have. The application forms will be distributed only to those who attend one of these sessions.
The table below lists the dates, times, and locations for these inquiry sessions. Please call the office (563) 888-4257 or e-mail the director at agnoli@davenport
diocese.org to reserve a place at one of these meetings.
