Permanent Diaconate Formation Retreat

Year 2 Permanent Diaconate Candidates, their wives, and the Tridiocesan Permanent Diaconate Formation team participated in a three-day retreat on March 15-17th, 2024. Archbishop LeGatt, from the Archdiocese of St. Boniface, led talks centred on “Breaking Open the Word of God to Ourselves,” which helped deepen the appreciation and practice of listening to the Holy Spirit and each other. Everyone was grateful for the opportunity to journey together, build community, and continue the discernment of how the Lord is calling each one of the participants to serve Him.

Please pray for the Candidates, their families, and the Formation Team as they progress through the remaining two years of the program.

-Deacons Gilles Lorteau and Michael Thibert
