Permanent Deacons are one of the greatest gifts our Church has today. I've been blessed to know several of the men serving our diocese in this capacity and they do so with such a spirit of service and love.
The Diocese of Springfield will be starting the formation of its 13th class of deacons. Men from the Diocese, age 31 and over, are invited to attend to find out more. On Sunday, March 4th, from 2 - 4 pm, the diocese will hold information sessions at three locations: The Bishop Marshall Center in downtown Springfield, the Newman Catholic Center at the University of Massachusetts in Amherst and at St. Joseph Church in Pittsfield.
