Diaconal Sunday – February 25, 2024

Celebrating witness expressed through service (diakonia) and leadership offered by the ELCIC’s diaconal ministers.

The last Sunday of February is Diaconal Ministry Sunday, the day the ELCIC celebrates the witness expressed through service (diakonia). Through our baptism all Christians are called to share God’s word and to serve our neighbours in Christ’s name. It is also a day to recognize and give thanks to God for all of those who serve in official calls as deacons in our church.
