On May 19, 2014, Br. Joseph Poulin, LC, was ordained to the transitional deaconate in his home diocese of San Bernardino, California.

The ordination took place in the parish St. Catherine of Alexandria in Temeluca, California, where he grew up. The main celebrant was Bishop Rutilio del Riego, auxiliary Bishop of the Diocese of San Bernardino. Diocesan priests and deacons from the area concelebrated.
