WATCH: An archbishop discusses the formation of deacons in Canada


Deacon Greg Kandra - published on 09/30/17

Father Thomas Rosica, CSB of Salt + Light TV, interviews Archbishop Michael Miller about a new directory on the formation of deacons in Canada!

Check it out below.

Significantly, he mentions that the Canadian directory describes the deacon’s ministry as being of Word, Liturgy and Charity & Justice. He also notes that the candidates are asked to spend “1,000 hours” in study—but it’s much more broadly defined than some may think.
