Please Support Next Weekend’s Deacon
Formation Collection: Deacons: Serving You…Since A.D. 33!
Did you know that the first Christian martyr, St. Stephen, ordained at the hands of the Apostles as one of the first seven deacons, lived and died proclaiming the Joy of the Gospel of Jesus Christ?
In the last four decades, hundreds of men have proclaimed the same Joy of the Gospel with their own lives. Lives of loving service that have in turn changed countless other lives for the better.
Called by Christ to minister to the people of the Archdiocese of St. Louis, our Deacons are preaching God’s Word to us, praying fervently for us, and caring compassionately for us each and every day.
Each year, many men discern that same call and begin the process of formation that, God willing, leads to ordination as Deacons. You can help support these men as they discern God’s will in their lives.
Deacon formation in the archdiocese relies heavily on the support of the annual Deacon Collection held this year on the weekend of Sept. 30th - Oct. 1st.
Should you have any questions, please feel free to speak with Deacon Tim Dallas, Deacon Fred Haehnel, or Deacon John Schiffer. They all have a story to tell.
As always, you can contact me by email: firstname.lastname@example.org and/or by phone: 636-946-6641 ext. 212.
Christ’s Peace be with you.
