Description

Servants of All brings together the history of the permanent diaconate as it was resurrected by the Second Vatican Council, then looks at a particular example of how the hopes of the Council Fathers bore fruit in Toronto, Canada’s largest Catholic diocese. The book traces the roots for the diaconate found in early Scriptures and the Church Fathers, along with pre-Vatican II movements to restore the diaconate as a third level of ordained ministry.

This informative and thorough book looks at the global history of the diaconate but its primary focus is on how the diaconate developed in the Archdiocese of Toronto – the first diocese in Canada to adopt the permanent diaconate after its approval by Pope Paul VI.
