Could you be a deacon 2021

Is it something you have been thinking about?

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.

As we gradually emerge from the lockdown restrictions, despite growing numbers of Covid cases, we’ve decided once again to hold our Diaconate Information Evenings in person.

The first for this academic year is at English Martyrs Parish Hall, School Lane, Litherland L21 7LX, on Thursday 4th November, 7.30-9.00pm, with refreshments from 7.00pm.

Anyone who is interested but unable to attend on 4th November is invited to This email address is being protected from spambots.

Please do what you can to publicise the evening and, even more importantly, encourage any prospective candidates to attend, or better still, offer to come along with them if you can.

With every good wish and prayer,

Chris Fallon
