Diaconal Ministry

The Diocese of New Westminster continues to be fully supportive of the vocational diaconate in the Diocese, with the goal of every parish having a deacon that will assist the parish to focus its energy on and organize for Gospel action in the neighborhood and the world.

A Deacon's Handbook which outlines the role of deacons and includes the diaconal covenant is available from a dedicated page. The link is in the left pane.

The Archdeacon for Deacons is the Venerable Bruce Morris and the Director of Diaconal Formation for the diocese is the Reverend Sharon Salomons.
