Road System Permanent Deacon Formation

Image result for permanent deacon

The Diocese of Fairbanks would like to announce the formation of a group of men to prayerfully consider a call to the permanent diaconate along the road system. Becoming a deacon involves a vocation from God; it is not simply another volunteer job or ministry. A person becomes a deacon not just out of personal desire or interest, but for the common good of the Church as determined by the bishop. The deacon is first and foremost a servant. He is an ordained servant to the Church, the People of God and to the community. His service provides the bishop and his priests greater latitude in their own ministries. It is for these reasons that the selection, discernment, and formation of deacon candidates are rigorous efforts. The entire formation process in fact, is a journey of discernment. Through systematic opportunities for prayer, spiritual direction, formal course work, and pastoral-skills development, the candidate is able to reflect critically on his life and the various ministries to which he might be assigned. This process of discernment continues to the very moment of ordination.

On Saturday, February 11th at 9:00 am, men interested in beginning their discernment will meet at the chancery office on the Cathedral property. Men must be at least 32 years old, full-initiated Catholics in good-standing and have a note of endorsement from his pastor in order to attend. This first meeting will outline the steps of pre-discernment, discernment/formation, and the commitment required to start the process. If you have questions, please contact Fr. Robert Fath at 907-374-9511 or email
