In the hierarchy of the Catholic Church, you have the Pope at the top (after God), cardinals, bishops, priests, and then deacons. Deacons may be married or single. However, if they are not married at the time they are ordained, they cannot marry after and are expected to live a life of celibacy. Catholics recognize two types of deacons - permanent and transitional. Permanent deacons are men ordained to an office in the Catholic Church who normally have no intention or desire of becoming priests. He can be single or married. If the latter, he must be married before being ordained a deacon. If his wife dies before him, he may be ordained a priest if the bishop permits and approves. Permanent deacons, especially those who are married, have secular jobs to support their families and also help the local pastor by visiting the sick, teaching the faith, counseling couples and individuals, working on parish committees and councils, and giving advice to the pastor. Transitional deacons are seminarians, students in the last phase of training for the Catholic priesthood. After being a deacon for a year, they’re ordained a priest by the bishop.

Do you want to date a deacon, Julia? Do so! You opened up a can of worms. So, all kinds of thoughts, from A to Z. Some are full of baloney!! Totally, disregard the one about the catholic church and it’s order ( NOTHING TO DO WITH GOD’S ORDER OF MINISTRY) of it’s anti-God/anti-God’s Word Truths. Church-ianity has loads of corny ideas about such a topic! If someone is in the deacon position and they wanna marry, then they hafta date someone before any pre-marriage thoughts are in place. Of course, a deacon can date and don’t think that it’s some kinda weird religious office, that many denominations make it out to be. For example, the catholic church has no scriptural basis, so, whatever they make up about a deacon is more so based in fantasy, as the rest of their “so called” ministry positions are ~ from the pope down!! And, several mainline denominations have silly misinterpretations of what a deacon’s role is!! Of course, to be a husband of 1 wife, in contrast to more than 1 wife!

Can unmarried Deacons date?Yes, they can.Is that true regardless of each Deacon’s gender?Yes, it is.What’s the role of Deacons?Basically, they look after the practical side of running churches, freeing Elders and Pastors to preach and teach

James McNair Brown

Yes he can. The only ones that don’t date or get married are Catholic priests. All the other religions in priest hoods can date and get married.

A deacon must have himself and or his family in order
