Diaconate information evening

As we prepare to receive our Synod Pastoral Plan, which will set out concrete actions to change our ways of working, so that our Church becomes more inclusive, more welcoming and more engaged with those on the margins, the ministry of deacons will continue to evolve alongside the presbyteral ministry in the service of the priesthood of all the baptised.


If you would like to hear how this is working out and you feel this may be your calling too, please join Archbishop Malcolm and the diaconate team in an evening meeting for men who may be wondering if they are called to serve as deacons and what the formation involves. Wives and supporting priests or deacons are also welcome.
 
If you are interested in the diaconate but unable to attend this evening, please email diaconate@rcaol.org.uk for more information.
