Rev. Mike Savelesky (509) 358-7333
Administrative Division: Inland Register, 12 June 2008 [cached]
Father Michael Savelesky, pastor of Assumption and director of the diocese's Deacon Formation Program, addressed a gathering of interested men and their spouses.
Father Savelesky explained that individuals would be accepted into the formation program through a step-by-step application process.
The over-riding goal of the first year, said Father Savelesky, is discernment of a genuine vocation to diaconal ministry.
"Pursuit of the diaconate must be motivated by more than a mere desire to help or to do," he said.
Some 50 men have expressed interest in the Deacon Formation Program, according to Father Savelesky.Screening candidates and limiting the number of program participants (if only for practical reasons) will be a challenge, he told the group.
In a letter sent later to all participants in the May 18 meeting, Father Savelesky wrote, "It goes without saying that not all who apply can be accepted, given the limitations of resources, space availability, formation techniques, etc. In addition, the pastoral and ministerial needs of the Diocese also will influence the selection process.The service of God's people is the vocation of all the baptized; the inability to meet criteria or to receive an eventual call to ordination to the diaconate should never be interpreted as rejection by the Church to the exercise of that fundamental call."
A Deacon Formation Program manual is available - as well as an application form for the Inquirer Phase of the program - through Father Savelesky's e-mail:

Catholic New World - Archbishop Blase Cupich named ninth archbishop of Chicago [cached]
Father Michael Savelesky, vicar general (one of two) and moderator of the curia for the Diocese of Spokane, said his diocese is happy and sad about the news.
"Sad to see him go, but we're happy for him because he's going to use his talent in a venue that will challenge him more, and happy for the new life he is going to bring to the church," Savelesky said.
"He is known as a man who can take on a lot of business work, but he always does it with a pastoral flair. He is very much committed to the Gospel, and very concerned about the spirituality of the Second Vatican Council, especially in line with what Pope Francis has been saying," he said.
The new archbishop is very intelligent, hardworking and expects everyone to be very pastoral.
The larger archdiocese won't intimidate Archbishop Cupich, Savelesky said.
