Diaconate is the last phase in the formation of a seminarian before his ordination to the Priesthood. Damien Lynch of Cloyne diocese, and Shane Sullivan of Tuam will be ordained in a ceremony rich in symbolism.
The ceremony will take place in the College Chapel at 11.00 a.m., and will be presided over by His Grace Most Reverend Dermot Clifford, Archbishop of Cashel. It is on this day that the seminarians formalise their commitment to the Priesthood, and takes their vows of chastity and obedience.
If you have not attended the ceremony of Ordination to Diaconate, this is your opportunity, as there will be plenty of room in the College Chapel, and all are welcome.
