The Holy Spirit’s purpose is clear: to raise up servants to assist the bishops in the proclamation of the Gospel and in the service of God’s people.

The Institute for Diaconate Formation at The Saint Paul Seminary exists to prepare men, single or married, working both in the world and in the Church, for this unique vocation of being ordained servant leaders for the New Evangelization.

I invite all men to listen to the stirrings of the Holy Spirit in their hearts.  All we need to do is follow His lead.
