Full Question

Is it alright for a deacon to wear priestly vestments at Mass?

Answer

No, a deacon should not wear the vestments of a priest, the same as a priest should not wear a bishop’s mitre.
However, we should be careful about jumping too quickly to conclusions. A deacon’s dalmatic can, from a distance, appear very similar to a priest’s chasuble.
