This website is created for and by Catholic deacons in Australia. We hope to reflect in these pages the diaconate in the Latin Church as well as in the Eastern and Oriental Catholic Churches. If you are a deacon we hope that you find in these pages articles that support your ongoing formation and stimulate your thinking about ministry. We hope too, that you will pick up some interesting news from Australia and around the world, as well as sharing news with other deacons. To contact the web Adminstrator
If you are in formation, someone discerning a call or just someone interested in the diaconate in the Catholic Church there will be things of interest here for you too.
We welcome articles from deacons. Please be aware they may be edited as appropriate.

In this section a number of deacons have written profiles about themselves. They share with us a little bit of their life story, their journey towards ordination and something of their ministry.
In time we hope to be able to have a profile of every Catholic deacon in Australia. Meeting deacons and learning about who they are reveals a diverse picture of the diaconate in Australia. To send profiles
