The National Association of Diaconate Directors exists to support diaconate directors, formation directors, associate directors, and their staffs in their mission to enable deacons, candidates, aspirants, their wives and families to utilize their gifts in the service of the Church following the model of Jesus Christ.
NADD offers a wide range of resources for the formation, ministry and life of Catholic deacons. These include the annual NADD convention, director's workshops, the National Directory Institute, the Ministry and Life Institute, and online sharing of best practices by our members.
The members of the National Association of Diaconate Directors are dedicated to the promotion of excellence in deacon formation and support for deacons in ministry. By sharing best practices and participating in NADD's programs our members realize the many benefits that NADD provides. Contact us to join!
