Importance of the Diaconate

The Hevupadiyakno, or diaconate, is the last step in the path to priesthood within the Syro-Malankara Catholic Church. Deacons play a vital role by assisting in liturgical services, proclaiming the Gospel, and performing acts of charity. This ordination represents their readiness to serve both the Church and the community with dedication and humility.

Bishop Vincent Mar Paulos led the deeply spiritual ordination ceremony, marking the beginning of a new chapter in the lives of these young men. Their commitment to their spiritual calling and their readiness to serve the Church was celebrated by the entire community.

The Eparchy of Marthandam extends its heartfelt prayers and congratulations to the newly ordained deacons. Their ordination underscores the Church’s dedication to fostering new leaders who will serve with compassion and devotion.

The diaconate ordination is a testament to the Church’s commitment to nurturing vocations and supporting the spiritual growth of its members, ensuring that the faith community continues to thrive and flourish.
