PflftT >«•" Garden City Telegram ~ Friday, 'June 4, 1971 MARRIED CLERGYMEN—DEACONS—IN CATHOLIC CHURCH Afew Corps Soon to Serve By GEOROI W. CORNELL AP Religion Writer NEW YORK (AP) — A new corps of married clergymen, the deacons, soon will be serving extensively in the Romian Catholic Church in this country. After two yeans of training, about 50 ol them are to be ordained in various dioceses by this fall, 30 of them in June. Agout 400 others are preparing for it. Most are married men. Their entry into the Church's official ministry marks a dramatic break with its practice of more than a millenia, and sharpens questions about other possible changes ahead for the Catholic clergy. "It is a very significant and historic step," says the Rev. William Philbin, of Washington, D.C., director of the Secretariat of the U.S. Bishops' Committee on the Permanent Diaconate. It ,also has stirred .new discussion of ordaining women and allowing priests to manry. The new deacons to be ordained ibis summer, among 430 men now hi training for the role wt 13 centers across-the country,. will be able to carry out' many of the functions of the priesthood. - . : By official ecclesiastical definition, they become clergymen, Jin major holy . orders, authorized to baptize, preach, distribute Communion, officiate at weddings and funerals, conduct religious devotions and education programs and perform oth- er'pastoral duties. Along -with bishops find priests, they wil .share "in the official leadership of the Christian community," writes the Rev. Thomas E. Clarke, of Jesuit Woodstock College in New York. However, unlike full prie&ts, •the new deacons won't be • able to consecrate the bread and wine of the Eucharist (the Lord's Suippar) or hear confessions. "While they can perform various liturgical .functions, much of their work is expected to be supplemental, such as in hospitals, chaplaincies and other service programs,". Father Philbin said. In most oases, it >also will be part time, since most deacons will remain self-supporting in their regular secular jobs, although some full-time assignments are contemplated now and more in the future. They can be put in charge of small parishes, lacking a priest. Heretofore, and for about 1,300 years, the diaconate in Catholicism has been a stage of ordination prior to entry into Hhe full priesthood. But the new deacons are being ordained to it permanently, a practice in New Testament times and during Christianity's early centuries. f i PONYTAIL Bible School to Start on Tuesday Canadian Quartet to Sing Here A Gospel Quartet from Canada will present an hour of Gospel music in the Garden Valley Church, 1701N. 3rd, Tuesday at 8 p.m. The Gospel Messengers Quartet has been singing the Gospel as a group for more than 20 years.
