All deacons are invited to a Deacons’ Day with the Bishop, January 15 at St. David’s, Southfield. It will be a hybrid event, available in-person or by Zoom.
This is not a quiet day. This is a day of prayer, reflection and discussion about your ministry as a deacon and how it can continue to grow. We will provide resources for your use and talk about networking and raising up new deacons.
Please register by January 10 so we have a count for lunch. Register at https://edomiforms.formstack.com/forms/deaconsday
We will send a Zoom link to those who are joining us virtually.
