Author Bio

Frederick Bauerschmidt is professor of theology at Loyola University Maryland and a permanent deacon of the Archdiocese of Baltimore, assigned to Corpus Christi parish.

About the Series

The Deacon’s Ministry series explores the three fundamental diaconal ministries identified in the teaching of Vatican II: those of the liturgy, of the word, and of charity to the people of God (Lumen Gentium 29). This series, written by three highly regarded permanent deacons, offers a rich combination of theology, spirituality, and practical and effective guidance. Deacons and those in diaconal formation, their families, the bishops and priests they work with, and the people they serve will welcome it.

Editorial Reviews

Deacon Frederick Bauerschmidt deals in very practical terms with the multifaceted aspects of the deacon's liturgical ministry, but also with the spirituality of his service. There is a superb balance struck between attending to the situational awareness' of the liturgy and the deacon's prayerful participation. Quite simply, The Deacon's Ministry of the Liturgy is splendid and I cannot recommend it highly enough.
Deacon Owen F. Cummings, Academic Dean and Regents' Professor of Theology, Mount Angel Seminary

For deacons who want to fulfill their liturgical role with more faith and understanding, for those who wonder what deacons may and may not do, for those curious about the history of the diaconate, for priests who share responsibilities with deacons, for men considering a call to the diaconate, for anyone seeking a better view of what deacons do and who they are, Deacon Frederick Bauerschmidt offers sure-footed information, pastoral guidance, and inspirational confidence.
