Have you ever seen a deacon’s ordination? Here’s a video

DEACON ORDINATION

Archdiocese of Cincinnati | YouTube | Fair Use

Aleteia - published on 05/05/19

These men receive Holy Orders with a special mission to give their life in service, as their Lord did.

The Archdiocese of Cincinnati had 18 men ordained to the diaconate this year.

Fifteen of them are permanent deacons, while three others are “transitional deacons,” men who are nearing the end of their studies to become priests.

This beautiful video shows the depth of their calling, and the splendid solemnity of the rite as they receive the Sacrament of Holy Orders and are set apart for the mission to imitate the One who said, “I have come not to be served but to serve.”
