DIACONATE  FORMATION

OLD TESTAMENT

A One year class focused on Salvation History utilizing Jeff Cavins (Ascension Press) Journey through the Bible as a supplement.

EARLY CHURCH FATHERS

A five month class focused on the Anti-Nicean Fathers of the Church, utilizing Dr Marcellino D'Ambrosio as a backgound text.

ATHEISM APOLOGETICS

A five month class focused on how to deal with the emerging arguments by Atheists, who question not only question our faith in God but are looking for a response.

The Purpose of this website is to have a convenient place where files of the lessons used during the Diaconate Formation Program can be downloaded by our future deacons for reference, study and future reflection and use.

"Believe what you read, teach what you believe, and practice what you teach."
