“Deacons share in Christ’s mission and grace in a special way. The sacrament of Holy
Orders marks them with an imprint (“character”) which cannot be removed and which
configures them to Christ, who made himself the ‘deacon’ or servant of all.” -CCC
Diaconate Intellectual Formation Program
About the Program:
The Neuhoff School of Ministry provides the academic component of deacon formation
for the dioceses of Dallas, Tyler, and Shreveport. The academic class schedule follows
the guidelines for diaconate formation laid out by the Congregation for Catholic Education
and the USCCB, and is supplemented by spiritual formation, provided by the dioceses.
The academic program is also available in Spanish, for those dioceses who see that
need as well.
Candidates for the diaconate can pursue the academic component of their formation
through the Master of Theological Studies program. This decision is made in consultation with the director of their diocese's
permanent deacon formation program.
