Ordination to the Diaconate

25 June 2023 @ 6:00 pm7:30 pm

On Sunday, 25th June, Bishop Ian will ordain Ian Boa as a deacon.

All are welcome at the service as we support Ian at this pivotal moment in his life.

What is the Diaconate?

The Diaconate is one of the three orders in the Scottish Episcopal Church (along with many other mainstream Churches):

  • Diaconate (deacons)
  • Presbyterate (priests)
  • Episcopate (bishops)

What do deacons do?

Deacons:

  • serve in the liturgy by reading the Gospel and assisting at the altar
  • baptise and conduct weddings and funerals
  • can be “vocational” (or permanent, like Rebekah)
    or “transitional” (the deacon prepares to be ordained priest at a later date).
