The bounty from the deacon's Lenten Diaper Drive stays local, which is good news for the Office of the Diaconate.
Otherwise, the archdiocesan office at Cardinal Rigali Center quickly would be overwhelmed.
"They all wouldn't fit in here," joked Deacon Christ Ast, whose office might fit 15 percent of the 125,000 diapers in the inaugural collection last year.
It doesn't matter if you're loyal to Huggies, Pampers or Luvs. The permanent deacons of the archdiocese want your diapers. New diapers, just to be clear.
The permanent deacons are organizing an archdiocesan-wide drive to collect baby diapers for those in need. Deacons primarily will organize collections in their parishes the weekend of March 12 and 13.
