The treatment of the individual rites contains numerous practical reminders that novice and experienced deacons alike will find helpful.

. . . packed with useful information for both transitional and permanent deacons. It is the perfect refresher or explanation and allows someone considering taking formation classes to understand what they are doing and why.

This brief and very helpful book would be perfect for diaconal formation and/or as a gift for the newly ordained deacon…very highly recommended.
