Celebrating Diaconal Sunday – February 23

On February 23, 2014 congregations and members of the ELCIC are invited to celebrate Diaconal Sunday and raise awareness of diakonia (service) as a vital dimension of the church’s witness and of rostered diaconal ministry as a valuable expression of church leadership.

Resources for worship and study are available on the ELCIC website and include a new hymn written by a diaconal candidate and generously shared with the church for this occasion.

Since 2012, the ELCIC National Church Council has designated the last Sunday of February to be celebrated as Diaconal Sunday within the church.
