Brother Oliver’s Diaconate in Rome. 

oliverThe ordination to the diaconate marks one of the final steps along the path to priesthood. It brings about a profound change in the life of the one who receives it, as it marks a passing from the lay to the clerical state, as well as the commitment to certain promises, namely, obedience, celibacy, and prayer.

 

oliver2Through the laying on of hands and the prayer of consecration by a Bishop, a man is configured more fully to Christ the Servant, and is charged in a new way with assisting in the worship of the community, especially by preaching, and in exercising works of charity. Thank you for your prayers.
