The Ontario Catholic Association of Diaconate Leaders (OCADL) brings together Diocesan Directors and others in leadership roles within the community of Roman Catholic Permanent Deacons in Ontario. It was founded for the purpose of sharing best practices and developing the capacity of those who support deacons in formation and in ministry to fulfil their roles within their home dioceses.

Each year, OCADL gathers members and other guests for professional collaboration and mutual support. We foster a strong working relationship with the Association of Catholic Bishops of Ontario who appoint a Bishop Liaison to OCADL.

This site will house resources to support the work of OCADL and the diaconate at large. Please use the contact form to let us know how we can be of service.
