Project Stephen

Catholic men of Central Texas: are you sensing a call to the permanent diaconate? 

Would you like help with what this means, and what might be next?

Then discuss the possibility of your call with your Pastor and then, with his permission, come explore next steps with Project Stephen.

 

Project Stephen meets every 3rd Thursday of the month at 7PM at the Pastoral Center in Austin.

 

  • come hear deacons share about their own sense of call, their formation journeys, and their lives of service.
  • come learn who a deacon is (qualities and characteristics), what he does (charisms of Word, Liturgy, and Charity), and what it takes to become a deacon (discernment and formation).
  • come pray before the Blessed Sacrament, study Blessed JPII's wisdom about discernment and enjoy the fellowship of other men/couples sensing a call as we discern together - where God is leading us.

 

Couples are urged to discern together so wives are strongly encouraged to attend these sessions.

Let Project Stephen help you discern - and answer - God's call to the permanent diaconate.

To ensure we have enough materials for you, please let us know which Thursday(s) you will be joining us: formationdirectors@austindiocese.org

 

PROJECTO ESTEBAN

¿Está Dios llamándote a convetirte en diácono permanente en la Iglesia Católica?

Si sientes el llamado al diaconado, platica con tu párroco y con su aprobación, ven y discierne tu llamado con la ayuda del Proyecto Esteban.

El Proyecto Esteban se reúne cada tercer jueves del mes, a las 7 de la noche en el Bishop´s Hall de la Catedral de Saint Mary.

--Ven y escucha a diáconos compartir la historia de su propio llamadao, su formación y servicio.

--Ven y aprende qué es un diácono, qué es lo que hace y qué es lo que se necesita para ordenarse como diacono permanente.

--Ven, discierne y ora con nosotros ante el Santísimo Sacramente.

Si estas casado por la iglesia, tu esposa esta cordialmente invitada.

Deja que el Proyecto Esteban te ayude a discernir -y a reponder- al llamada de Dios al diaconado.
