... an essential for deacons--temporary or permanent.

Church

Succinct and solid, Fr. Kwatera’s short volume lays out the deacon’s liturgical duties in each of the pertinent sacraments, as well as postoral care of the sick, Communion outside Mass, Benediction, the liturgy of the hours, the way of the Cross, and the Holy Week Liturgies.

Recommended for all theological collections.
Catholic Library World

The Liturgical Ministry of Deacons can also be effectively used in parish educational programs and vocational recruitment seminars.
Catholic Library World

The treatment of the individual rites contains numerous practical reminders that novice and experienced deacons alike will find helpful.
Pastoral Music

. . . packed with useful information for both transitional and permanent deacons. It is the perfect refresher or explanation and allows someone considering taking formation classes to understand what they are doing and why.
CRUX of the News

This brief and very helpful book would be perfect for diaconal formation and/or as a gift for the newly ordained deacon…very highly recommended.
