The Permanent Deacon was first instituted by the Apostles (Acts 6: 1-6) as a stable, permanent ministry of diaconia.

By the 5th Century he had disappeared from the Western Church. This Sacred Order of Permanent Deacon was restored in the Catholic Church by the Second Vatican Council which took place in Rome from 1962 to 1965. Both Pope St. Paul VI and Pope Francis called it the restoration of the original Deacon to the Apostles. The Permanent Deacon had been absent from the Church for approximately 1500 years.

Who is a Permanent Deacon

A married or single man who has been through; a period of approved spiritual, academic, pastoral, liturgical and human formation, a process of screening, a psychometric evaluation and has been accepted by his local ordinary, that is, the Bishop, and has been ordained, that is, received the Sacrament of Holy Orders, by the Bishop to the Sacred Order of Permanent Deacon in the Catholic Church.

Criteria needed to become a Permanent Deacon

The man who aspires to become a Permanent Deacon is one who has a genuine calling to serve and not be served nor is he seeking the status of being a member of the clergy. If a single man becomes a Deacon he is bound to remain celibate and cannot marry. If a married man becomes a Deacon he is bound to celibacy if he becomes a widower. The minimum age of ordination to the order of Permanent Deacon is 35 years old. Since the formation programme is at least 5 years, a man may commence formation anytime after the age of 30 years old but not later than 60 years old.

The goal of establishing a fully integrated digital platform has been ongoing, the challenge lies in the fact the transport industry is dynamic which does not lend itself to an off the shelf package. A lot of work has been put in to the development and integration of our telematics software to interface with our reporting and invoicing accounting package. This is a cloud-based system allowing users to access from remote locations allowing staff access to information from any location. The system is also highly customisable.

The end goal is to integrate this through all departments within our company and also to create dashboards and reporting features for clients. Management will be able to track most KPIs on a real time basis.

We have also partnered with industry leaders in technology both in South Africa and internationally that provide products and services to the transport industry. These products and services are offered to all clients and is customised to their unique operation and needs as we understand that each client is different.
