In this new century, the Catholic deacon is vital to every parish. The deacon is an important servant of Christ. Along with his normal duties, each deacon has a personal ministry based on St. Paul's words of faith, hope and love. Their added strength comes from their wives, who believe that the greatest of these is love. In this video we see a deacon's ordination and journey through a day of service with them and their wives as they minister to the people of God in the areas of visiting the sick and those in prison, assisting the poor and hungry, counseling those addicted, proclaiming the Word of God, assisting at Eucharist, and more.
