Permanent deacons often serve in parish or other ministry as their time permits, since they typically have other full-time employment. They may also act, with permission of the Bishop, as parish administrators. With the passage of time, more and more deacons are serving in full-time ministries in parishes, hospitals, prisons, and in diocesan positions.

Deacons often work directly in ministry to the marginalized inside and outside the church: the poor, the sick, the hungry, and the imprisoned.
