The Miami Diaconal Program

The Miami Diaconal Program, housed at Christ the Saviour Orthodox Cathedral in Miami Lakes, Florida, offers face-to-face training and mentorship. Study the Orthodox Faith and learn the skills needed for the Holy Diaconate.*

Students will earn 24 graduate-level credits during the program, which may later be transferred directly to the Master of Divinity program at St Tikhon's Seminary, or to another institution (according to their respective policies concerning transfer of outside credits).

All graduates from the Miami Diaconal Program will receive the Certificate of Diaconal Formation from St Tikhon's Seminary, and may attend the Spring graduation ceremony in South Canaan, PA.

Those interested in auditing classes (non-credit) should contact Fr Joseph Lucas (Program Director) at

* All ordinations to the diaconate are at the discretion of the candidate's bishop or episcopal synod.  Graduation from the Miami Diaconal Formation Program does not guarantee ordination.
