A Deacon in the Catholic Church is an ordained minister. He is ordained “not to priesthood but to service.” In the Catholic Church the ordained ministry comprises three orders: bishops, priests and deacons. Deacons, like priests and bishops, are men who have undertaken a significant period of formation. Some deacons are ordained on the way to becoming priests (‘transitional’ deacons). Others are ordained in order to serve the Church as deacons (‘permanent’ deacons). In the latter case they must be over 35 years of age when ordained, and may be married.
