Ordination to the Transitional Diaconate

The Ordination to the Transitional Diaconate is on Saturday, May 23, 2020 at Holy Name of Jesus Cathedral at 10:00am. Mass will be private and limited to essential personnel. The Mass will be streamed live on the Diocese of Raleigh You Tube page.
As your plans may have changed with the new date, you are asked to RSVP again. To RSVP, please go to: https://dioceseofraleigh.org/ordinations.
As the difficulties and challenges brought on by the coronavirus pandemic continue to impact our community and the world, our constant mission must be directed toward the safeguarding and protecting of public health. It is with this in mind that it has been decided to limit attendance at this year’s diaconal ordination liturgy to those persons who are essential to the celebration of the sacrament.
Transitional Ordination to the Diaconate, therefore, will not be celebrated this year as a liturgy open to the public. Only those who have been previously contacted will be allowed to attend. The entire liturgy will be live-streamed to the diocese so that we may all join in joy with our brothers whom God has found worthy to become heralds of his Gospel.
