Some people actually do not know the distinction between a priest and a deacon: this is the observation of Rev. Jaekel Solde, my deacon classmate. Diaconate is the last stage for priesthood. A Deacon is called a Reverend, while the priest is called a Father.
In one instance, Rev. Jaekel met this woman who kept on calling him “Father, Father.” He explained to her the difference and insisted that the woman call him “Reverend” instead of “Father.” After a short explanation, the woman exclaimed, “So, deacon pa po pala kayo Father?” (So, you are still a deacon, Father?”)
