Along with the other Munster dioceses who have permanent deacons, the diocese of Kerry will be organising an initial introductory “Come and See” year involving 6 weekends starting in September 2017. The age limit for ordination is 60. Application is open to all men who are practising Catholics and have an involvement in their local parish. The first step is to contact your own local priest. Kerry diocese already has two deacons and please God four more will be ordained within the next two years.

In this time of waiting try not to lose hope. Do not walk away from the God who knows you and loves you more than you can ever know. He will help you to be a person of strength and courage in time of adversity and uncertainty. He will be your companion on your road to Emmaus......Margaret Theresa Naughton
