The Order of the Diaconate is a permanent order in the Church and an active part of the Byzantine Catholic Church. Formation for the diaconate consists of a four-year academic and formation program which includes a two-week intensive summer program here at the Byzantine Catholic Seminary in the month of June, followed by a program of distance learning through guided reading and the writing of papers through the rest of the year.

For more information about the program, please see this page at the Archeparchy of Pittsburgh’s website or contact your local vocation director.
