CWN Editor's Note: “At the same time, 334 deacons retired from active ministry and another 289 deacons died,” the USCCB said at it released its annual survey on the permanent diaconate. “As is the case with priests in the United States, there are not enough new permanent deacons being ordained to make up for the numbers who are retiring from active ministry or dying each year.”
