Deacon Dave Ferrell and Archdeacon Cookie Clark will be mentoring a series of discernment workshops for those persons considering ordination to the Diaconate. These workshops are for discerners from congregations in the southern area of the diocese, east of Sacramento.
The first meeting is Saturday, September 15 at St. John’s, Marysville, from 10 – 2.
There is no charge for these workshops. The only cost to the participant will be time, travel and brown bag lunch. If the participant decides to seek ordination, the usual Diocesan steps in the Ordination Manual and costs will apply.
It is not necessary to attend these workshops in order to enter into the ordination process. However, it might be helpful to have this time of prayer, meditation, and a chance to meet and talk with a variety of deacons for discernment. Those who decide upon ordination, with very few exceptions, will attend the School for Deacons. Potential students must meet with the Bishop for permission to attend the School
For details or if plan to attend, please contact Cookie at firstname.lastname@example.org or Dave at email@example.com.
