Welcome and thank you for your interest in the Deaconess Community!
We are an intentional community of women deacons on the roster of Word and Service in the ELCA and diaconal ministers in the ELCIC. We long for and work towards impacting this broken and beautiful world through our radical diaconal leadership, prophetic ministry on the margins, and accountable relationship within our community.
We are dedicated to:
- Prophetic Diakonia
- Intentional Community
If you would like more information about the Deaconess Community, who we are and what we do and are about, please contact Sister Noreen.Stevens@elca.org
We extend gracious hospitality and radical welcome to all women. To learn more about our intentional welcome, read our Statement of Welcome.
