The Office of the Diaconate provides general catechesis and information on the vocation of the deacon.  It conducts the selection and admission process for applicants to diaconate formation and provides, through the Athenaeum of Ohio, a diaconate formation program for the archdiocese.  The Office encourages spiritual, intellectual, personal, ministerial and communal growth among deacons and serves as a resource for placement and other personnel concerns of diocesan deacons.
