Deacons: Caring for You…Since A.D. 33
Please Support This Year’s Deacon Formation Collection
Did you know that, over the last four decades, dozens of Deacons of the Archdiocese of St. Louis have, in addition to their parish service, volunteered countless hours of selfless, loving care for those in our midst who are suffering and in need? Like those first seven ordained by the apostles, our deacons are called to be ministers of charity and models of Christ-like compassion for the sick, the poor, the imprisoned, and the dying, Deacons “wash the feet” of the faithful each day, seeing the face of Christ revealed in their ailing brothers and sisters. Deacons can be found sharing the Joy of the Gospel, offering us comfort in every facet of daily life—nursing homes, hospitals, hospices, prisons, schools, airports, businesses, and more. You can help our future deacons be Christ’s hands and feet with your charitable donation to this year’s Deacon Formation Collection. Deacon formation in the archdiocese relies heavily on the support of the annual Deacon Formation Collection, held this coming October 2nd and 3rd. Please be as generous as possible. God bless you for your support!
