This year, we’re fundraising for the Permanent Diaconate Program. Deacons can baptize, witness marriages, perform funeral and burial services outside of Mass, distribute Holy Communion, and preach the homily, but what most express they love about their vocation is serving people. Join us for a Virtual Holy Hour on October 15 from 12-1pm, live-streamed from the Tepeyac Institute Facebook page. PRAY. SERVE. GIVE.
The Foundation for the Diocese of El Paso is a nonprofit 501 (c) 3 established in 2001 to support the growing needs of our community. We’re raising funds for the Permanent Diaconate Program. This year, the El Paso Giving campaign will begin on October 8th for a week of “early giving” and culminate on October 15th, when Walmart will generously match donations up to $300,000.
Formation to the Permanent Diaconate is a five-year program, which includes one year of discernment and four years of candidacy consisting of formation seminars, academic courses, annual retreats, and parish assignments.
