Renewing the Male and Female Diaconate in the Orthodox Church 2017 Conference
On October 6-7, 2017, the St. Phoebe Center for the Deaconess will hold its 2017 conference: Renewing the Males and Female Diaconate in the Orthodox Church. This Pan-Orthodox conference will examine the theology, history, and purpose of the diaconate; both male and female. It will include four sessions: the present state of the diaconate; the ways men and women are engaged in diaconal service today; the opportunities to engage with both clergy and faithful on rejuvenation of the male and female diaconate; and the difficulties and benefits of ordaining women deacons — all for the building up of the body of Christ.
Full registration includes Friday evening keynote address and refreshments, and Saturday conference sessions and handouts, continental breakfast, lunch, and afternoon coffee and refreshments.
